The Llandudno Airshow 2013 is set to wow the town and all those lucky enough to visit with a spectacular Airshow that incorporates a number of excellent classic aircraft, giving you’re a thrilling experience from the shores of Llandudno.
The Airshow is on to honour the charitable work done for blind veterans and servicemen – and is going to be put on for free to the locals and visitors of Llandudno. This will in fact be the first air show that Llandudno has ever presented and will be sponsored by Mostyn Estates.
The Llandudno Promenade will prove to be the best viewing spot in the area, with all displays taking place directly above. The first Bank Holiday in May sees the Llandudno Victorian Extravaganza 2013 take over the Bank Holiday Weekend of the 4th, 5th and 6th May – and now event organisers are hoping that this amazing event will attract visitors into the town on the second Bank Holiday weekend.
The line up for the day is as follows:
12:30 to 13:30 Search & Rescue Demonstration (SAR) – RAF Sea King & RNLI
14:00 to 14:30 BBMF Fighters (2 x 7 min slots)
15:00 to 15:30 BAC Strikemaster
15:45 to 16:15 Cor Meibion Maelgwn male voice choir & Llandudno Town Band
16:30 to end RAF Falcons
“The Estate is funding the air show, which will be free to the public, because we want to celebrate and support Blind Veterans UK, who have moved into the town, and also the RAF Benevolent Fund, both very worthwhile military charities,” said Mostyn Estates Managing Director, Edward Hiller.
“We also want to put on something which will attract visitors to the town over the second May Bank Holiday weekend. The Victorian Extravaganza is a big attraction on the first Bank Holiday and we want to keep up that impetus. We have given a commitment to stage the show for three years and it’s hoped to build it into a much bigger event.”
“We are starting off modestly, but have been fortunate to gain the support of the RAF, and of course it would be wonderful if we could bring the Red Arrows back to give a display. That wasn’t possible this year, but who knows what the future holds?” said Mr Hiller.
“It’s exciting that we have got the Spitfire and Hurricane coming to give a display, and the RAF Falcons are a major attraction. They will jump onto the beach at low tide, and they will be happy to meet people afterwards and talk about what they do.”
“We have a 1930s style poster, designed to promote the event, which will be displayed in the lead-up to the Bank Holiday at all Arriva train and bus stations and other prominent locations. Hopefully this will encourage lots of people to come to the air show,” he said.
The line up that is planned for this event is set to be a real corker – and if the weather is good, it could be one of the best events of the year. Don’t miss this.
