Rare seaplane booked for Jersey
The rare Sikorsky S38 seaplane ‘Osa’s Ark’ will be displaying at Jersey's airshow.
September 3: Mike Higgins, organiser of the Jersey International Air Display, has confirmed that the rare Sikorsky S38 seaplane ‘Osa’s Ark’ will be displaying at the airshow held in St Aubin’s Bay on Thursday, September 9.
Due to the tide conditions, the aircraft won’t be landing on the water, but it will be the only chance for UK enthusiasts to see this aircraft, which recently flew across the Atlantic Ocean for charity.
On a slightly disappointing note, the French Air Force Rafale display has been cancelled for “operational reasons”, but an exciting line-up of unusual display items will include crowd-pleasers such as the Vulcan and Red Arrows.
