The line-up for the Torbay Airshow has slightly changed to mechanical issues with some of the aircraft due to display.

Posting an update on Facebook, Torbay Airshow said: “Due to mechanical issues with the aircraft the Vampire pair will not be able to join us this weekend. However we will now be joined by the stunning Bristol Blenheim Mk1 from the Aircraft Restoration Company on both Saturday and Sunday!

“There will also be some amends to the flying timetable, as the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (Official) has had to withdraw the Spitfire and the Hurricane from the display due to mechanical issues – as can happen with aircraft of their age. This means there will now be a solo Spitfire flight from the City of Exeter Spitfire and the Lancaster / Dakota duo later on in the day.”

The new line up is as follows:

Saturday 2nd June:

1pm – 2pm: Team Raven, Ov-10 Bronco, Spitfire Mkix

2pm – 3pm: The Blades, Grob Tutor, Autogyro, Pitts Special S1-s

3pm – 4pm: The Red Arrows, Aerosuperbatics Wingwalkers, Tigers Freefall Parachute Display Team

4pm – 5pm: Strikemaster, Bristol Blenheim Mk1, Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight (Lancaster And Dakota), Raf Typhoon Display Team

Sunday 3rd June
1pm – 2pm: Team Raven, Ov-10 Bronco

2pm – 3pm: Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight (Lancaster And Dakota), Grob Tutor, Autogyro, Pitts Special S1-s

3pm – 4pm: The Red Arrows, Tigers Fft, Bristol Blenheim Mk1

4pm – 5pm: Strikemaster, Chinook, The Blades, Spitfire Mkix, Raf Typhoon Display Team
