Cancellation of Air Show & Transport Festival in 2018

It is with much regret the Committee must announce the cancellation of our 2018 show.  Despite the dedicated efforts of everyone concerned a combination of factors beyond our control, including increasing costs and weather, have placed an unsustainable strain on financial resources.  Read more...

The weather may not have been the best on Sunday but it only prevented 2 participants from joining our line-up.  The stunning displays, given by those pilots and teams who arrived, provided us with a show full of anticipation and excitement to watch and follow in the skies over Welshpool. 

 

Once again we'd like to thank the many people who give their time and effort into ensuring we all have a good day.  The volunteers who get involved in all areas, not just on the day, to help keep things running smoothly and the Air Cadets who circulate the airfield ready to provide any help or information required.

Everyone gains on the day thanks to the efforts put in by enthusiasts to maintain their vehicles and bring them along to the Transport Festival as they allow us all to see the way the transport industry has evolved.  The numerous and varied stands and stalls and, of course, the sponsors whose support and contributions make all the difference to the day. 

 

The most important element on the day is the people who come along and enjoy themselves.  

Thanks to you all.
