Air Show:  This will be evolving over the Mar Menor, between 10:00 and 15:00 hours.
Participants in the Air Show will be:
Flight of the ASPA Patrol. This is a Helicopter Team from a Military air base in Granada and is an acrobatic team using typically 5 Eurocopters, model EC 120B Colibri.

Also on show will be the PAPEA Team (Patrulla Acrobática Paracaidista del Ejército del Aire) which is the freefall and acrobatic parachute team.

There will also be flights and air displays by a Firequencher UD-14 (Bombardier CL-415) used by Spain’s Forest Firefighters, the AV-8B Harrier, a Wing Walker by the name of Ainoha Sánchez San Jose, and she is a woman.

Also there will be flights and displays by the Frecce Tricolori (Italian equivalent of the Red Arrows) and the Patrouille de France (French Air Force equivalent of the Red Arrows) as well as the Eurofighter, the F-15 Hornet and the Eagle Patrol (The Spanish equivalent of the Red Arrows).

Given the Open Day aspect on Saturday 17th, it is likely that there will be thousands turning up during the day, so perhaps it will be a good idea to get there early !

The Sunday air displays, so far as we know, are aiming to be over the Mar Menor in the Los Alcazares/San Javier areas, which will obviously offer the best views.
