Ok so that's The Old Bückers, The Great War Display Team and now XH558 The Vulcan to add to this year's airshow line-up. Yes, the nerve-tingling, window-rattling, top-billing, ever-thrilling Vulcan is once more booked to thunder through our Welshpool sky this summer.
The rest of our display schedule is shaping up nicely now too. The following are all confirmed for June 14th :
Bücker Jungmann formation display team, the Old Buckers have confirmed their appearance overhead Welshpool this summer. A firm favourite with us, they make the short trip from their base at Sleap airfield, near Shrewsbury. Their display is an evocative presentation of close formation manoeuvres with sights and sounds nostalgic of the 1930's era. www.oldbuckers.co.uk
The ever popular Festival of Transport returns to the air show at Welshpool for 2015. Always an interesting and eclectic mix of vehicles together with their interesting, eclectic and enthusiastic owners. If you have a charismatic car/bus/lorry/bike/tractor er... armoured vehicle/tank er... submarine then you should do the decent thing and let the good public of Welshpool get to see it. So, Mike Kilvert's your man, and he'll ask you to <<fill out one of these forms>> and send it off to him. His contact details are on the form should you have any questions. The answer to your first question though is - No, it's completely free.
What a coup for Airshow 2015 - The Great War Display Team have confirmed their appearance at the Bob Jones Memorial Airshow, Welshpool next June 14th. In these centenary years, what could be a more fitting display. 9 replica aircraft, of five different types will perform choreographed dogfights right above our heads. Smoke swirls and engrossing aerial theatre. The words you are looking for are dagga-dagga-dagga-dagga !
