Airbourne, also known as Eastbourne International Airshow, is a 4-day international air show run every August in Eastbourne, Sussex, England. Based around a long relationship with the Red Arrows display team, the event features Battle of Britain memorial flights and aircraft from the RAF, USAF and many others.
Started in 1993,, the show is run by Eastbourne Borough Council, who claim it contributes to the millions of pounds which tourism bring to the town..
A dedicated FM radio station, "Radio Airbourne", broadcasts on 87.7FM during the event.
The organisers remained confident that there would be an event in 2009, but admitted that lessons would have to be learnt, and the funding of the event reviewed. Council leader David Tutt said: "We will be investigating what went right, what went wrong and looking very seriously at ways of ensuring the event for future years.
