Bob Seger said it best in his song "Night Moves", and the fun doesn't end when the sun begins to set...instead, it HEATS UP!

Returning for the SIXTH year due to popular demand is the Field of Flight Twilight & Night Air Show. This year's event will take place on SATURDAY, JULY 4th and feature some of the Best & Most unique night acts in the world today. Whether the sky is illuminated with fireworks, sparks & pyro, or lights, this year's Night Air Show will be one you won't forget. Let's not forget about the ground either as you will surely feel the heat from flames being shot out of a jet engine. You won't want to miss this year's Twilight & Night Spectacular.

  • SPITFIRE Jet Truck Night Run

Any vehicle powered by a jet engine is amazing....but seeing one at night is a truly different experience. You are sure to feel the heat as the SPITFIRE Jet Truck (fitting name) spits out flames as it rolls by. After some fun on the runways and tarmacs, Paul Stender will throttle up the FOUR ENGINES and do a power rundown the runway with after burning engines illuminating the event grounds and airportSpeeding at speeds potentially approaching 400 mph.

  • OTTO Night Time Spectacular

    This air show act is surely not to be missed. It is an act that is arguably the BEST Night Show Act in the air show industry today. For 12 minutes, the entire audience will be held captive by magic as Roger Buis takes off in OTTO the Helicopter for an unforgettable experience. This low-level act comes complete with one of the most amazing pyro & light shows that is a fireworks display itself. Set to Celtic music and patriotic music, this display is complete with bright flashes, smoke and that wonderful helicopter sound. Just when you think the show is over, the entire flight line is lit up by a patriotic grand finale. This will be one of the most amazing things you'll see in your life. You do not want to miss it! It is surely the perfect display for Independence Day
