All set for Shannon air display

The line-up for the spectacular Shannon Air Display on Saturday week has been finalised.

An estimated 40,000 people are expected to throng the Shannon Airport’s airfield, which will be transformed into the viewing area for the stunning overhead displays, as 20 domestic and international acts, operating 33 separate aircraft, go through their lightning fast paces.

The action will be far from confined to the skies above Shannon, with a vast array of on-the-ground activities – over 20 separate children’s attractions and 25 food operators, as well as music entertainment. A static aircraft and tank display in the spectator zone is also set to be a major attraction.

The main event happens in the skies, however, and crowds will be served up a stunning display, with some of Europe’s leading performers on hand to deliver the captivating performances during the five hour event.

Among the most recently confirmed performers is Dave Bruton, who is rated by his peers as among the best aerobatics acts in the world and set to enthral crowds with his daredevil acts in his high-performance two-seater Extreme 342 aircraft.
