Probably the best little air show in the country

Sunday 11th June 2017 - A Date for your diary

The Bob Jones Memorial Airshow is always an exciting and fun day for the whole family to enjoy and this year will be no exception.  Added to thrilling and breathtaking displays in the skies we have the Transport Festival with it's wide ranging exhibits of cherised classic and vintage cars, motorbikes, buses and industrial vehicles.   .

Other attractions on the day will include helicopter rides (during which you will see Welshpool and the Airport in a very different way), trade stands, activities for the children and stalls (some of which sell teas, coffees and food to sustain you).  A day with something for everyone.
