Bob Jones Memorial Airshow 2017

posted in: Blog | 0

The Bob Jones Memorial Airshow returns this Sunday.
Sunday 11th June 2017
This year, the star attraction is the Rockwell OV-10 Bronco, a stunning turboprop attack aircraft that was specifically designed for the Vietnam conflict. The Belgian-based team is highly experience and will be coming to Welshpool for the first time!

In addition to the Bronco, this year's airshow features an extensive line-up of wonderful displays. The day will open with the aerial arrival of the Red Devils Parachute Team. In addition, we are honoured to see the return of the Battle of Britain Memorial Display, featuring two Spitfires. The highly entertaining Bob Pooler is back in his Aviat Husky, along with the impressive Team Raven and well as Laura Richardson and her Pitts Special.

After popular demand, this year we don't have just one BAC Strikemaster but two! We will also receive our first Soviet airplane - the Yakovlev Yak-3. For those who bore of fixed wings will be delighted to see the Westland Whirlwind along with a gyrocopter. Last but not least, we will feature the Old Bucker pair and an RAF Grob Tutor display.
Tickets are on sale now! Please visit the website for ticket sales.

Please note that similar parking restrictions will apply to last year, with parking and shuttlebuses at Welshpool Livestock Market.
Note: times and line-up subject to changes due to weather, availability and other facts beyond our control. The Bronco OV-10 replaces the previously advertised Sea Vixen which had to pull out.
