It’s a day that enthusiasts from across the UK are starting to look forward to just as much as us locals, and organisers have revealed that we are in for a treat.

The Bob Jones Memorial Airshow will take place on June 11 and an initial ‘what’s on’ insight has been provided by the hard working committee.

And it shows that some of the thousands expected to attend will be able to take helicopter rides from the airshow site, not to mention enjoy a whole host of ‘on-the-ground’ activities to complement what’s happening in the skies above.

“The Bob Jones Memorial Airshow is always an exciting and fun day for the whole family to enjoy and this year will be no exception,” a spokesperson told us.

“Added to thrilling and breathtaking displays in the skies we have the Transport Festival with its wide ranging exhibits of cherished classic and vintage cars, motorbikes, buses and industrial vehicles.

“Other attractions on the day will include helicopter rides (during which you will see Welshpool and the Airport in a very different way), trade stands, activities for the children and stalls. Something for everyone.”

Aircraft confirmed so far include:

Red Devils Freefall Team  

BAC Strikemaster (Pair)

Twister Aerobatics Team

Grob Tutor

Old Bückers

Team Raven


Aviat Husky (with Bob Pooler performing his renown aerobatic skills)  

Pitts Special S1-S, Lauren Richardson

Westland Whirlwind HAR10
