The 15th Bray Air Display made a spectacular comeback today after a forced two-year break due to the pandemic.  30+ aircraft flown by the most skilled pilots from Ireland and around the world brought incredible, show-stopping scenes to the skies over Bray, thrilling thousands of spectators at the free weekend of turbo-charged family entertainment.

This year’s event celebrated 100 years of the Irish Air Corps. Bray Air Display favourites, the Royal Jordanian Falcons aerobatic team stunned the crowd with their close formation manoeuvres.

Sé Pardy, Director, Bray Air Display, said, “It’s wonderful to be back. Thanks to everyone who came to Bray to support the event and cheer on the participants. A special thanks to all the display teams for putting on an amazing show. Making the Bray Air Display happen every year is very much a team effort that takes months of hard work and commitment. We sincerely thank everyone involved, particularly the Irish Air Corps, Weston Airport and Wicklow County Council, and our dedicated volunteers. See you all next July!”
