Lowveld Airshow 2018

What do you get when you combine the best aerobatic pilots, the biggest, loudest and most show-stopping aircraft in the country? A head-banging performance.

And that is exactly what the 2018 Lowveld Air Show is promising, with the theme like Rock n Roll, how can you afford to miss out on one of the most important dates of the Lowveld’s events calendar.

Now in its’ 14th year, the Lowveld Air Show has each year worked hard to bring a new and fresh approach to air shows in South Africa. This year, they plan to ‘Rock the Runway’, with a lineup of thrilling aerobatic performances, coupled with some of the best rock ‘n roll music in history.

“We believe that deep down inside, every one of us has a little ‘rock ‘n roll’ spirit in them. It’s what we grew up with. And to combine that now with something as synonymous as fighter jets and helicopters, it’s a dream come true for young and old,” says Johan Heine, Chairman of the Lowveld Air Show Committee.

The Nelspruit Airfield will also offer a wide variety of delicious food vendors, exhibitions and their biggest kids play area to date, hosted by the Just for Fun company, well known for their kids’ entertainment area at the annual Uplands Festival. Parents will be delighted to know they can let their children play in a safe, secure and fun area on the day.

Not only will the entire day be centred around rock ‘n roll, but after the extravagant fireworks show at the end of the air show, the stage will be lit for an electrifying rock and roll experience on the runway, offering spectators the opportunity to enjoy the day further at the Lowveld Airfield. And the Lowveld Air Show is promising one thing, “We will, we will Rock you!

Tickets are on sale now on lowveldairshow.co.za. Ticket prices include the full day of air show performances, rounded off with a Rock and Roll afterparty. Adult tickets are R150 and scholars pay R100. Pre-scholars will again enjoy FREE entrance.

An early word from the organisers of the Lowveld Airshow:

The Lowveld Air Show returns in 2018 for another action-packed programme. After the freak weather cyclone which hit Mpumalanga in May 2017, this air show was very successfully moved to June and is now the only air show known to have postponed the event and not cancelled it.

The aviation industry applauded this brave move at the time and commended the Lowveld Air Show committee for still being able to maintain the build-up towards the event.

This year The Lowveld airshow kicks off with the annual Cadet Day on Friday the 11th May, an event aimed at educating the youth on the world of aviation. The South African Air Force will host a display to promote the opportunities for thousands of scholars interested in pursuing a career in aviation, after which the attending students will be entertained with an exclusive youth air show programme.

On Saturday, 12 May the official opening kicks off at 10:00 with a full day of aviation aerobatics. The Lowveld Air Show will once again feature spectacular flying displays as well as a wide range of business, commercial, and military aircraft at various static aircraft displays that will captivate and thrill visitors. A wide variety of vendors and food stalls will also be available to those attending.
