ON Friday it was revealed that a new air show is coming to Falmouth.

It will be part of the new line-up for Falmouth Week, with no less than three aerobatic display teams flying on Wednesday, August 14, in an hour-long show above Falmouth Bay.

Appearing in Falmouth will be The Blades, AeroSuperBatic Wingwalkers and The Strikemaster Pair.

It follows the news that the Red Arrows will not be taking part in the event this year.

The Blades are arguably just as exciting – as all of them are former Red Arrows pilots.

And they also claim to the the world's only aerobatic airline, as their two-seater aircraft allows passengers to experience the thrills and spills of aerobatic display flying.

Back in 2015 The Packet's editor, Steve Smith, was lucky enough to do just that.

You can get a flavour of what it's like to be in the middle of some daring flying in the video above.
