AIRSHOW LONDON Hits the Jackpot in Las Vegas


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: Tuesday, December 4, 2018

 

AIRSHOW LONDON (ASL) has confirmed the legendary US Air Force THUNDERBIRDS. The Ambassadors in Blue will command London skies in 2020.  The ASL team released the news from Las Vegas, where they are attending the International Council of Airshows (ICAS) and winning big. In addition to the Thunderbird confirmation, ASL also announced the first three demo teams for the 2019 show.  The ACC A10 (Warthog) Demo team, the CF-18 Demo Team and the Snowbirds made their London performances official this morning.

AIRSHOW LONDON fans will be familiar with the outstanding performances of the Canadian Forces contingent with the CF-18 Demo Team and the 431 Air Demonstration Squadron, Snowbirds. Added to the aerial performance will be the A-10 – the U S Air Force’s premier close air support aircraft known for providing invaluable protection to troops on the ground.  The Air Combat Command A-10C Thunderbolt II Demonstration Team, stationed out of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona, brings the aircraft to air shows around the world to showcase the unique combat capabilities of the A-10 “Warthog.” They perform precision aerial maneuvers while highlighting the mission and professionalism of the men and women of the US Air Force. The team also pays homage to the Air Force’s proud history by flying formations with historical aircraft in the Air Force Heritage Flight

Dave De Kelver, ASL Executive Director, news to media and across multiple social platforms as soon as it entered the public realm.  “We know there are thousands of fans waiting to see and hear who will be flying at AIRSHOW LONDON this September and in the future.  As our reach continues to grow and we draw spectators from across North America, Europe and Asia, it’s important we share the line up as soon as we can.  Airshow aficionados choose the shows they want to see, and book flights and accommodation well in advance.  Keeping everyone up to speed on AIRSHOW LONDON helps start the process for our event.”

De Kelver says the ASL team is often working two years in advance to secure aircraft and performers but all announcements remain under wraps until the actual teams make it official.  Itineraries for many of the teams are released at ICAS, while others are completed during the next few months.

AIRSHOW LONDON 2019 dates are set for September 13 – 15th. The show’s theme in 2019 will celebrate NATO’s 70th anniversary.
