Dog fights from the First World War will be recre­ated over Great Yar­mouth seafront as one of the star at­trac­tions at the re­sort’s new air show.

A 10-air­craft dis­play team of iconic Bri­tish and Ger­man fighter, ground at­tack and spot­ter planes will twist and turn over the shore­line, just as they did above the First World War trenches 100 years ago. The Bre­mont Great War Dis­play team has been un­veiled by show or­gan­is­ers from the Greater Yar­mouth Tourism and Busi­ness Im­prove­ment Area, who are stag­ing the June 16-17 event as part of their drive to at­tract more visi­tors to the area. And suc­cess in at­tract­ing hordes of visi­tors looks as­sured as on both days there will be per­for­mances by the world fa­mous Red Ar­rows. Show di­rec­tor Asa Mor­ri­son says: “Th­ese Great War planes will pro­vide a rarely-seen aerial spec­ta­cle over the Great Yar­mouth’s shore­line – and it is par­tic­u­larly fit­ting, as we com­mem­o­rate the cen­te­nary of the war end­ing, to re­mem­ber what th­ese heroic pi­lots did with ba­sic air­craft dur­ing life or death sit­u­a­tions over the trenches.” The Great War team is also mark­ing a mile­stone, as it is 30 years since it was founded in 1988. The Haven Great Yar­mouth Air Show is ex­pected to at­tract 170,000 peo­ple and gen­er­ate £10m for lo­cal traders.

Other dis­plays in­clude the Blades and Wild­cats aer­o­bat­ics team, the Army’s Tigers freefall parachutists and a Long-EZ fly­ing wing.
