Ground Displays

Our ground displays will fill Paignton Green, with plenty to do! Open from midday over the event weekend the Torbay Airshow Event Village will feature exhibition stands, bars, food stalls, display teams, activities for all the family and a fairground.

Aspiring aeronauts will have the opportunity to take a ride in a flight simulator and test their metal as an RAF pilot, as well as get the chance to meet the display pilots themselves at the various Royal Air Force stands.

For those who favour the sea over the sky, HMS Somerset will be visiting the bay and will be offering Airshow visitors the chance to climb on board and experience a Royal Navy Frigate up close.

Feeling a little lucky? The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund will be offering visitors the chance to win an Aston Martin Vanquish S Red Arrows car – the spectacular car, Red 10 celebrates two of the most iconic marques in British history and engineering as a unique tribute to the RAF Red Arrows. All funds from the raffle will go directly to the RAF Benevolent Fund, supporting RAF personnel past and present and their families.

The team from The Breeze radio will be giving visitors the chance to win a massive £10,000 cash prize and for anyone looking to get into the summer holiday spirit, Go Cruise & Travel and the team from Parks Holidays Landscove Holiday Park will be available to lend a helping hand.

Visitors to the Event Village can also enjoy a delicious array of food stalls and bars, offering everything from fish and chips to BBQ, churros and doughnuts. Then, once lunch is over, the little ones can be let loose to burn off some energy on inflatable slides, bouncy castles or enjoy a range of family activities hosted by Paignton Zoo and Living Coasts Zoo & Aquarium.

Torbay Airshow visitors can indulge in some retail therapy as the Event Village will offer everything from personalised gifts, toys and festival essentials, through to South American handcrafts, garden furniture and even wines to sample.
