Spain’s famous Eagle Patrol, Patrulla Águila, is scheduled to perform an air display as part of the celebration of 600 years of La Villa de Teguise. The display will take place on 28th October 2018.

Teguise is celebrating 600 years since the town was founded as the capital of The Canary Islands in 1418.

The aerobatic display team was set up in 1985 and consists of 7 Aviojet aircraft. They are particularly well known for their formation landings.

The display will take place over Playa Las Cucharas in Costa Teguise and is due to start at 1230 on Sunday 28th October – see you there!

Best places to watch

Obviously the beach at Playa las Cucharas, but also consider along the harbour wall there, as you’ll have land as a backdrop for photos. How about Monte Corona, the hill at the back of Costa Teguise? For those in Puerto del Carmen who don’t want to travel, you could watch them take off from the airport, and return after the display to (hopefully) do one of their famous formation landings.

Update 24th October – Parking, road closures etc.

Costa Teguise is going to be quite “locked down” for security reasons from Friday until Sunday. Some roads will be closed, parking on the harbour wall will be prohibited and parts of the Paseo Maritimo will be closed prior to and during the display.

Our advice, if you are going to watch, is to get there well before the display is due to start.

If you want a copy of the official bulletin showing the road closures and timings, you can download it from our Dropbox here: Bando Municipal.
