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. This is OUR WAY of celebrating America's 239th Birthday....and this birthday celebration will BE LIKE NO OTHER!
TWILIGHT AIR SHOW
While our Twilight Lineup is still being determined, it will feature teaser acts and performances by some of our AMAZING civilian air show performers. Stay tuned here for more information when it becomes available.
The Balloon Illume will separate the Twilight & Night Air Shows.
NIGHT AIR SHOW
Our Night Pyro Air Show will come after the Balloon Illume (the Balloon Illume will separate the Twilight & Night Pyro Air Shows). The Night Air Show will feature:
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 airport. Speeding at speeds potentially approaching 400 mph. This is a demonstration you won't want to miss.
Are you ready to FEEL THE HEAT? Because you surely will as Firewalkers International Pyro blows up our airfield, capping off our Night Air Show with a SERIOUS BANG! If you thought the GREAT WALL OF FIRE was spectacular during our day shows, wait until you experience it at night. We'll begin with a series of explosions that lead into an epic explosion effect known as "Willy Pete Phosphorous Effects". After a few more explosions, it happens....THE GREAT WALL OF FIRE! You'll feel it before you see it, and see it before you hear it. As the explosion rumbles the ground and the heat warms up the event grounds and all of a sudden it becomes daytime at the airport, just for a split second. As the light fades, the smoke rolls into the air and everyone around is clapping, in shock because of what they just experienced. Everyone loves the Wall of Fire, but, at night, it is a totally different ballgame and it is something that MUST BE EXPERIENCED!
