Jersey's southern seafront is expected to be lined with spectators - all looking to the sky - for this year's air display.

The event is due to start at 1pm with the RAF's modern day Poseidon patrol aircraft.

French aerobatic display team the Patrouille de France are due up next.

There will be more aerobatics from Jett Pitts.

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is set to feature the magnificent trio of WW2 aircraft the Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster.

There is also an RAF Seafire - a navy variant of the Spitfire aircraft - as well as the Catalina, the US Bronco and the Swedish Draken.

The famous and always popular Red Arrows will being the show to a close at 4.25pm.

The latest display timetable can be found here;

Organisers  are hoping plane-spotters will download a digital souvenir programme.

They say challenges and delays getting the event together has meant they couldn't produce a print version.

The online edition is free of the air display website, but there is a link and QR code asking for donations towards the cost of staging the show.

“Due to matters out of our control we have been unable to provide a printed brochure this year. The brochure is an essential source of revenue for the air display, as well as a much loved souvenir for those enjoying the show. This year we have put together a FREE digital downloadable edition for everyone and would be very grateful for any donations towards supporting the JIAD” - Mike Higgins.

Victoria Avenue will be closed between midday and 5.30pm.
