Titan the Robot will be back again at the 2018 Clacton Airshow to entertain the crowds on the ground during the two-day event.
Returning after the success of previous years the mechanical entertainer, known as “the future of entertainment”, is set to give a unique performance to children and adults alike during the Airshow on August 23-24.
Also joining the spectacular on ground level, in between the aerial entertainment, will be the Clacton Lifeboat open day. The RNLI station will be open to allow the public to take a closer look at the lifeboats and other equipment used at sea.
As always, the family-focused event’s first day will finish with an incredible fireworks display from Clacton Pier for everyone to enjoy.
Three further flights have been unveiled for the aerial line-up, each offering something different to the airshow on both days of the Tendring District Council (TDC)-organised event.
The Bronco Demo Team display demonstrates a message of peace and remembrance, whilst acting with style and grace. The bright graphics of the aircraft create a vivid and unique effect when they are in flight.
The Norwegian Vampire Pair from the nation’s air force gives younger generations a taste of history of this aircraft, as well as demonstrating the important role they had in aviation.
Another brilliant aircraft performing is the P-51D Mustang, a must-see for fans of the Hangar 11 collection and known as one of the finest Allied fighters in the Second World War.
Mick Skeels, TDC Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, said fun on the ground was an important part of the airshow.
“We work tirelessly through the year to make sure our Clacton Airshow is a complete success and enjoyed by all ages,” Cllr Skeels said.
“Each year the crowds grow and hopefully that’ll be the case this year.
“Alongside the aircraft displays, there are so many other festivities during these two days that can be enjoyed by everyone – we know that for younger children in particular the flights, as spectacular as they are, may not always hold their attention so it is important we offer other things as well.”
