AGUILA PATROL: one of the teams due at the show.

TORRE DEL MAR is gearing up for its much-awaited air show, which will be filling the sky with aircraft and impressive displays on July 29-31.

The poster for the event was officially presented on Tuesday (July 19) by the local authorities, with Velez-Malaga Mayor Antonio Moreno Ferrer explaining that an estimated 30 planes and pilots from the UK, Spain, France, Italy, Portugal and Belgium are due at the show.

While Friday 29 will be used mainly for rehearsals, the main activities will be the Sunset Air Show on Saturday evening with British patrol Aero Sparks making the most of the sunset for a stunning visual display and main displays on Sunday with appearances by some of Europe’s best air patrol teams and a wing walking display.

The show is expected to attract hundreds of visitors to the area and has been praised as a great idea to attract tourists from near and far to visit Torre del Mar.

Malaga Provincial Council deputy Francisco Salado congratulated the organisers for their initiative, stating: “The show will benefit Torre del Mar and the whole province as it helps us adapt to the demands of the tourist market by providing more than just sun, sand and sea.”


  1. Hi John, the organisers have yet to announce the official times for the displays, for the time being we can only assume that the Sunset Air Show on the Saturday evening will indeed be around or just before sunset. The official website says it will publish the times here when they are confirmed
    and of course EWN will be providing the information for our readers as soon as we receive it.
