Peter Sinclair, flight director, said: “Bringing the RAF Typhoon to this year’s Rhyl Air Show was a coup for the council’s events team.
"The RAF’s Lancaster was built at Hawarden and for the RAF to allocate BBMF, including its iconic bomber, means that we can put on another very worthy show with a good military presence.
"The RAF Tucano will also be at Rhyl for the first time in many years and the events teams is still in discussions with other potential participants. There will be other high profile display items that will ensure that this 11th Rhyl Air Display of the modern era showcases the development and style that is becoming Rhyl."
Cllr Win Mullen-James, mayor of Rhyl, said: “The air show is a spectacular event that ends the summer season on a real high. Year on year, the Air Show secures displays from some of the leading aviation display teams and historic aircrafts and we have received great feedback from visitors and residents who return time and again for the event.
"This event certainly puts the town on the map, it’s great for its reputation and a super opportunity to boost the local economy.”
Cllr Hugh Evans, leader of Denbighshire County Council, said: "The Rhyl Air Show is recognised as one of the best events of its kind in the country and there is always great anticipation to see what will be appearing."
