Clacton air show announcement

Three more aircraft displays have signed up to take part in this year's Clacton Air Show.

The Tutor, Tucano and Sea King helicopter will all be appearing alongside the Red Arrows, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, and Trig Aerobatic team on August 22 and 23.

Alan Goggin, Tendring District Council's Cabinet member for Tourism, said it hopes to announce another major attraction to rival the Red Arrows next month.

"All the signs are that we'll have a magnificent flight programme in place and everything is coming together nicely for the event," he said.

The Clacton Air Show is the signature event on Tendring's tourism calendar and a vital boost to the District's economy - bringing in around £4m more than would be generated over the two days without the event.
