A VisitBlackpool spokesperson said: “We are thrilled to announce that the Red Arrows will perform on both days of our Air Show for a second consecutive year.
“Last year’s event demonstrated the extraordinary pulling power of not just the Reds, but also the magnificent Typhoon display team and Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight.
“It promises to be another very special weekend in what is an action-packed calendar of free events in Blackpool this year.”
