Back by popular demand, our Night Air Show will return in 2019. One major difference, however, is that the show has been "supersized" compared to years past! On the evening of July 5th, we will present an “Evening of Magic”. As the sun begins to set and Twilight takes over the airport, some of the best performers in North America will take to the skies. With the sun setting and offering different views of the acts, it is truly a unique experience. As it gets darker, aircraft will take to the skies with special lights on their aircraft. But we won’t stop there! After the sun sets, the action heats up again. Bob Seger said it best in his song, “Night Moves”, and now we will present a Spectacular Night Air Show featuring Aircraft with Lights, Pyro. Ground Launched Pyro and Lasers. Flying fireworks displays at their finest. If you have never experienced a Night Air Show before, July 5th is the time to!

This Award Winning Act features one of the Tiger Airshows Yak-55s dressed up in special lighting to outline the aircrafts shape. This makes the plane look like it is something straight out of TRON. But wait, the fun doesn't stop just with the plane's lights, but what about an excellent, and challenging, aerobatics routine with a theatrical storyline and soundtrack? That isn't it either....fireballs and flames shot from the ground, a massive laser light and an amazing pyrotechnical fireworks display makes this act one that you won't want to miss.
