British Airshows 2016
Hundreds of thousands of people followed PlanesTV’s live online broadcasts from 2016 airshows, in this programme we bring you the highlights of each of them.
2016 became the year of the United Kingdom’s latest frontline jet, the F-35B Lightning II. It gave an impressive role demonstration at the Royal International Air Tattoo. The Air Tattoo also gave us an awesome site of the extraordinary manoeuvrability of the F-22 Raptor.
At Farnborough we got glimpses of two aeroplanes we haven’t seen much of lately – the gorgeous de Havilland DH88 Comet, and the not-quite-so-gorgeous, but still fascinating Edgeley Optica.
Torbay was a new show on the calendar, and made for a superb setting for airshow regulars such as the Breitling Wingwalkers and the Yakovlevs.
