Heart's been getting a look ahead at what we can expect from this year's Bournemouth Air Festival.

Last year 1.3 million people went to the event over 4 days in August.

This year it's happening 19th- 22nd August and for this first time they'll be a night time air display, film screenings- and new European planes.

John Weaver's the Air festival Director, he told Heart how the festival boosts the town's economy:

" Last year it generated about over £30 million to the local economy. It's important from the community's perspective, it's important for people like the RAF who want to come back each year, the crowds are there, and it's important for the tourism trade as well."
