A huge air show will swoop into Cork Harbour in 2020
The largest air show ever seen in the history of Cork Harbour will take place next summer.
Dozens of aircraft, including the Aero Superbatics Wing Walkers and the Strike Masters jet display teams, are already confirmed for the inaugural Cobh Air Spectacular on July 12th, 2020.
Some of Ireland’s most skilled aerobatic pilots will also be taking part, drawing up to 100,000 spectators to vantage points across Cobh and the lower harbour.
Organisers are promising single engine aerobatics, historical aircraft flypasts and displays from the Irish Coastguard and RNLI. The event has been timed to coincide with Cork 300, which celebrates three centuries of activity at the Royal Cork YachtClub.
“This event will be unlike anything we have ever seen on the south coast, and marks a huge opportunity to establish Cobh and the lower harbour as a regular venue for a world class airshow.” says event organiser Captain Rich MacIlwraith.
