Vampires, Ravens and Black Knights Ready for Air Show Take-Off

Friday, July 11th 2014 

The Vampires of the Norwegian Air Force Historical Squadron, the Black Knights Defence Forces Parachute Team and aerobatic pilots from the Ravens are ready for take-off at this year’s Bray Air Display on Sunday, July 20th for Bray Summerfest, supported by the Irish Aviation Authority.

Ireland’s largest free air show takes off at 3.30pm and the display attracted a record-breaking 85,000 spectators last year, with similar numbers expected again this year. For the first time ever, the three hour display will be live streamed through (link to watch here), helping the Bray Air Display reach international audiences online.

The ‘Flying Dentist’ (former aerobatic champion, Eddie Goggins) and the ‘Flying Farmer’ (former RAF pilot, Gerry Humphreys) are teaming up once again as ‘Aer Dynamics’. Their smoke-filled display promises to fill the skies with crossover loops, synchronised hammerheads and split shamrocks.

The Aer Lingus A321 is opening the show and The Twister Team trio are also making a welcome return, in their Silence Twister aircraft.  The Pitts Trig Team, Stobart Air, the Sikorsky helicopter from the Irish Coast Guard,  the Boeing Stearman and the so called ‘Admirals Barge’ (the Beech Expediter) will also be entertaining the large crowds expected.

A piece of aviation history will be created on Sunday (July 20), with a unique display by three vintage aircraft: the 1936 Iolar from Aer Lingus along with two Chipmunks, flying in retro Irish Air Corps colours. Meanwhile, this year’s headline acts also include the Hawker Hunter, The Strike Master and the Irish Aer Corps.

Sé Pardy, the Display Director from Simtech Aviation, said: “This year’s display programme is the most family-friendly yet, with lots of spectacular aerial action for visitors of all ages to enjoy. From vintage planes  from the 1930s, 40s and 50s to high speed aerobic formations, we’re welcoming top pilots from Ireland and around the world to Bray, to showcase aviation at its very best.”

The Bray Air Display is just one of the highlights of the Bray Summerfest programme (#bsf14) which promises to be another sensational Summerfest for families and individuals of all ages. The five weekends encompass music acts and artistsFamily Fiesta, open air cinema and the Wicklow Food and Garden Festival. A finale firework display closes the Bray Summerfest festival on August 4th.

    Well, you need to just sit down and talk with her. Tell her you want to tell her how your feeling, and if she respects you enough..she will be more then willing to listen. I agree that your business should simply be YOUR BUSINESS. No one elses, not even the whole families. It’s about you and her. That’s it. It’s okay to get support from family sure…but you and her need to talk first.
