It’s just over a month to go and we’re all steam ahead with Airshow preparations. There’s still time to book tickets online and save 15%! Although the Red Arrows display takes centre stage this year, there is much to do behind the scenes with our on the ground activity. Our Emergency Services Planning Team meeting has already taken place and discussions with our headline ground entertainment act Jamie Squibb are going well. He will be doing heart stopping, jaw dropping motorbike stunts!
The Haddington Pipe band will open the Airshow again and they have promised to bring the glorious weather back with them this year – so sunscreen and water is a must!
Norman Webster our Flight Director is busy working out all the flight display timings so we can put the Airshow Programme together in time for print deadlines. All catering is now confirmed and Well Hung and Tender Team among others will once again be supplying our visitors with their juicy Aberdeen Angus burgers.
Our Craft and Culture Marquee just about filled to the brim with local crafters and organisations, charities and children’s activities – welcome again to the very poplar Kids Bee Happy team and their sand art activities for the wee ones.
We are again getting fantastic support from the South East Scotland Wing Air Training Corps (ATC) , without whose help at the Airshow we would be unable to steward all of our areas and their contribution is immeasurable.
We are looking for volunteers… if anyone is interested in having a tiring but fun and rewarding day helping us with stewarding then please download an application form from our website. Keep an eye on all the latest Airshow information and how to save 15% by booking your tickets early here.
