All-Star Cast Will Light Up the Sky at AirVenture Night Air Show
Fresh off last year's extremely popular debut, the Night Air Show and Daher-Socata Fireworks with the "Wall of Fire" return on Saturday, July 30, to light up the sky on the final evening at EAA AirVenture 2011. Start time is approximately 8:45 p.m., with fireworks to follow at 9:30 p.m.
The inaugural night air show at EAA AirVenture 2010 drew tens of thousands to the flightline, where they were dazzled by a stunning display of precision aerobatics and pyrotechnics from many of the world’s top air show performers.
Several performers from 2010, including the AeroShell Aerobatic Team (T-6s), Bob Carlton (jet sailplane), Gene Soucy (Showcat), and Matt Younkin (Twin Beech), along with Steve Oliver (Chipmunk), are scheduled to perform their signature maneuvers choreographed to pyrotechnics and music.
"Judging by the rave reviews it received in 2010, the night air show exceeded all expectations," said Tom Poberezny, EAA and AirVenture chairman. "It instantly became a signature, must-see attraction at AirVenture, and the perfect way to celebrate the final evening of what will be a week filled with highlights."
Following the night air show, performers will be available for a meet-and-greet alongside their aircraft. Additional activities surrounding the night air show will be announced in coming weeks on www.airventure.org. Advance purchase admission tickets and camping are now available at a discounted rate.
