Fly below the Red Arrows at the Bournemouth Air Festival!

Aug 28, 2018

Fancy flying over Bournemouth beach at the same time as the Red Arrows?!  Bournemouth Pier is home to the world’s first pier to shore zip wire and visitors and locals are being urged not to miss out on this opportunity to zip surf over the waves from the tower at the end of the pier, to land on the beach with the Red Arrows team flying overhead!

Bournemouth Pier marketing manager Sarah Hunter advised, “The Air Festival organisers have announced flying schedules and we are keen that air festival enthusiasts and dare devils don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to be air borne at the same time as the Red Arrows!  Zip Wire bookings can be made online and there are limited spaces available for time slots.  There’s even an opportunity to capture images of zip surfers’ experiences from our newly installed photo system which takes photos at the top of the zip wire tower and on the descent down to the beach. What a brilliant photo it would make of a zip surfer and the Red Arrows plane and smoke in the background!”

Online booking for the zip wire guarantees free entry to the pier.
