Probably the best little air show in the country
Sunday 11th June 2017 - A Date For Your Diary
Does your diary for 2017 have important entries already? We are pleased to announce that 11th June 2017 can now be added as the day you will be enjoying the return of the Bob Jones Memorial Air Show & Festival of Transport.
Further information regarding purchase of advance tickets, display details and other exciting news will be announced here over the coming months.
2016 Air Show
Another exciting and fun day for everyone this year and for the first time you can relive the day through our video below. Although not all of the scheduled line-up were able to reach Welshpool, due either to technical issues or heavy rain and poor visibility in the south of England, the air displays given were stunning.
Thanks to all the volunteers who turn up not only on the day but also on many preceding days to give up their time. Particularly as many of them are so busy carrying out their duties on the day they don't get to enjoy the numerous things going on.
Thanks also to the displaying pilots, the excellent and varied stall holders and food sellers and, of course, all the sponsors - whose contributions make all the difference. Thanks to the air cadets for their polite and smart efforts throughout the day. Well done to the motoring enthusiasts for a wonderful display of vintage wheels. Thanks to the medical standby personnel and thanks to the amazing general public for coming, having a great time and spending their money at "Probably the best little air show in the country".
