Midland’s Air Festival on 20/05/2018 @ 5:30am

This is a spectacular new aviation event for the Midlands, featuring the best of virtually every type of aviation.

The 19th & 20th May will be packed with an exciting air display, with classic WW1 & 2 fighters, high energy aerobatics, classic jets, flying circus, parachutes, helicopters and gyrocopter. There will also be a full hot air balloon festival with up to 50 balloons expected and some stunning, massive special shaped character balloons which will take your breath away!…

Nightfire will be on the evening of the 18th May and will be a stunning combination of a night time aerobatic air display with the aircraft lit with on board computer controlled lighting systems and beautiful cascading pyrotechnics, the focus then shifts back to the ground where we light up the sky with our hot air balloon glow. Balloons inflated and burning in the night sky to a choreographed music track, along with more flames from balloon baskets with burners. This all leads up to a spectacular fireworks finale to finish off a truly spectacular and wonderful evening of sound, light, fireworks and flames. All rounded off with trade, exhibits, arena events and activities, The Midland Air Festival promises to be a fantastic day out for all the family.

Gates open at 5:30am
First balloon flights from 6:00am (if weather permits)
