Around 250,000 people are expected to descend on Swansea for the two-day event featuring such stars of the skies as the Red Arrows, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and planes from World War I.

This year's event celebrates the foundation of the RAF in 1918, commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I and includes Armed Forces Day on Saturday at noon at the Cenotaph on the Swansea seafront.

There will be thousands of car parking spaces available to accommodate visitors ranging from the new, dedicated Airshow Park and Ride at Bay Studio's on Fabian Way to premium places like the Recreation Ground.

They're also being reminded not to park in resident parking bays, on yellow lines or in other areas where parking restrictions exist as civil enforcement officers will be on patrol both days.

Swansea City Centre will be open for business as usual and travellers are being urged to plan their journeys and make allowances for traffic delays.

There will be lots to do on the ground at the Wales Airshow, including music from 30 local bands courtesy of the Swansea Music Hub, a replica Red Arrow and simulators, plus displays from the British Army, Royal Navy and the RAF.

There's lots of useful information about how visitors can access first-aid, get support in tracking down children who've wandered off and other safety tips.

Visitors are being urged to keep the Wales Airshow tidy by disposing of their waste thoughtfully in the many recycling points dotted around the area.
