Vampire Airshows is making its’ debut appearance at our show!  The Vampire is unique to the air show circuit bringing speed, noise, jet warbird aerobatics and a profile that grabs the audience’s attention. The de Havilland Vampire is a historical aircraft, developed as the world’s first single engine jet fighter. Only 3,300 were manufactured worldwide to replace many wartime piston-engine fighter aircraft. Nicknamed Vampy “Too,” the jet will perform rolls, inverted flight, high-speed passes and more, all with an extreme smoke system.
