Are you ready for "A Little Night Magic"?
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 fourth year due to popular demand is the Field of Flight Twilight & Night Pyro Air Show. This year's event will take place on FRIDAY, JULY 5th 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 Pyro 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.
TWILIGHT AIR SHOW - 9:00 - 9:30 PM
Our Twilight Air Show will begin at 9:00 on July 5th and feature some of the best acts in the country, including the Aerostars.
- Aerostars Twilight Performance
If you like the Aerostars Daytime performance, than you will certainly like their night time performance. With that distinctive radial roar, the Aerostars will take to the skies in their Russian Yak-52TW's. The maneuvers flown during their twilight performance might be similar to the ones that they fly during the day, but there is a big difference...this time they are illuminated by powerful lights beneath the aircraft. As the sky gets darker, the aircraft get brighter as they fly an amazing formation aerobatic routine against the setting sun.
BALLOON ILLUME - 9:30 - 10:00 PM
The Balloon Illume will separate the Twilight & Night Pyro Air Shows.
NIGHT PYRO AIR SHOW - 10:00 - 10:30 PM
Our Night Pyro Air Show will come after a Balloon Illume (the Balloon Illume will separate the Twilight & Night Pyro Air Shows). The Night Pyro Air Show will feature:
- "Flash Fire Jet Truck II" 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 "Flash Fire II" spits out flames as it rolls by.
After some fun on the runways and tarmacs. Chris Darnell will throttle up the engine and do a power run down the runway with the after burning engine illuminating the event grounds and airport. Speeding at over 275 miles per hour with a flame and flashing police lights, this is a demonstration you won't want to miss.
- Dan Buchanan's Night Spectacular
Dan Buchanan has one of the best and most inspirational performances in the air show industry and after dark, it gets even more spectacular. His incredible Night Spectacular show presents the entire fabric wing of his motorized glider glowing and flashing with numerous special effects (lights, pyro, you name it). Disney himself would think this act is amazing. With the flashing lights, beautiful pyro, the silent glider and the stirring music, this up close and personal night act is very unique and unforgettable. You do not want to miss Dan's night act.
- OTTO Night Time Spectacular
This act is surely not to be missed. It is an act that is arguably the BEST Night Show Act in the airshow 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!
