Dan Rodgers, Event Manager had this to say on the launch of Southend Airshow & Military Festival:

“Its extremely exciting to see after 18 months of hard work behind the scenes that we are finally able to confirm a date and start to realise Tom and John’s dream and bring a fantastic people’s Airshow back to Southend”

Thomas Curtis, Director of Media and Communications commented:

“There is no doubt in my mind that Southend Airshow & Military Festival will be the highlight of Summer 2015, the team has worked incredibly hard over the last year and a half to create a fully costed, workable and sustainable event that Southend can be proud of and put the town on the map. We will have more announcements to come, but for now we hope the whole town is excited as we are that the Airshow is back!”

John Delaney, Director of Sponsorships and Partnerships added:

“Its been a long haul to get here and I am delighted we can now look forward to an Airshow in Southend for 2015. The event takes place on the recognized Battle of Britain weekend but the weekend of the 12th will also be the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. Its a great reminder of the British sprit to never give up no matter what the odds against may be, and our sponsors have made the return of the Airshow possible so my deepest thanks to all of them for supporting the return of the Airshow.
