Another star addition to Air Show

The Bob Jones Memorial Air Show is set to deliver its biggest and best edition yet when some of the finest display aircraft to be found anywhere will be filling our skies this Sunday.

And if last week’s confirmation of a Red Arrows appearance wasn’t enough, last night organisers added another big name to the bill in the OV-10 Bronco Demo Team (pictured).

The plane will be demonstrating the capabilities previously appreciated not only by US Air Force, Marines and Navy but in roles such as firefighting.

The short takeoff and landing and maneuverability allows it to perform very close formations and the addition of smoke (using only environmentally friendly compounds) makes it is easy to follow in the sky.

With just a few days to go, organisers are urging local residents to buy their tickets in advance and take advantage of the free bus service from the Tourist Information Office as well as the free park and rise from the Livestock Market.

“Tickets are available at a discount in advance with no booking fees via the web site at or from the Tourist Information Centre,” said a spokesperson. “The line-up this year includes the Red Arrows salute, Bronco, Hurricane, Spitfire, Team Raven, Red Devils Parachute Team, Gyrocopter, Wirlwind helicopter, Pitts Special, Huskey and more.”
