Show-stopping line-up at largest airshow on the island of Ireland

This weekend, Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September, Air Waves Portrush will see a show-stopping line-up of world-famous aviation attractions, including an exclusive display from thelegendary P-47-D Thunderbolt.


Thousands of people are expected to descend upon the seaside town of Portrush for a spectacular array of thrilling flying displays and a host of land-based family entertainment at the largest airshow on the island of Ireland.

The Deputy Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Alderman Sharon McKillop, said: “After lots of planning and organisation, we are now ready for one of the biggest weekends of the year in Portrush. With thousands of people expected to visit the resort on Saturday and Sunday, I hope they enjoy the fantastic programme of aviation attractions and everything happening on the ground. Along with air displays overlooking East Strand, there’ll be lots of local produce and live music, static aircraft displays and family fun zones along with the not-to-be-missed STEM Village. There really is no other event like it!”

The fast and furious P-47-D Thunderbolt will be the star attraction and will dazzle spectators with a thrilling show of power and sound on its first ever appearance at Air Waves Portrush.
