The clifftop and seafront at Bournemouth are likely to be crowded this weekend and certainly noisy.
The air show starts today and crowds are expected to build up during the next four days when the displays are over the bay.
A good place to watch might be from around Old Harry Rocks between Swanage and Studland.
This event is a preview of the 2010 air show which will be part of Bournemouth’s bi-centenary celebrations. A century ago the centenary events included an air display at Southbourne during which Charles Rolls died.
Bournemouth Air Festival runs from Thursday 20 to Sunday 23 August.
