If you’ve ever hesitated about coming to the event and passed it off as being just for ‘plane spotters’, then take another look at Wings Over Illawarra. The yearly event happening next May is more than just an airshow, now boasting the largest carnival on the NSW South Coast with unlimited carnival rides all day included in the entry ticket. It’s certainly something to seriously consider as a surprise stocking filler for a loved one this Christmas.
Thanks to the new partnership between Bright Events – the event organisers – and the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society, visitors will also have access to all the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society aircraft that are open for inspection as well as freestyle motocross displays and one of the best air displays Downunder.
Bright Events have been organising the event since 2014 and are delighted that the NSW Government now considers the event as the second largest regional event in NSW attracting over 35,000 visitors and injecting over $7 million to the local economy annually.
“Wings Over Illawarra is truly an event for the whole family, with plenty of attractions for visitors of all ages – there’s plenty of fun to be had for everyone” said Mark Bright, Director of Bright Events. “With full access to all the HARS aircraft that are open for inspection, world class motocross displays, unlimited carnival rides, food stalls and ground displays, plus of course the high-octane aerobatic displays that we have come to expect at Australia’s largest annual airshow. We have lots in store for the 2019 airshow including classic warbirds, heart stopping aerobatics from Red Bull air-racer Matt Hall and stunt pilot Paul Bennet, modern military fighters and helicopters from the Australian Defence Force and a huge array of magnificent aircraft of yesteryear.”
“Wings Over Illawarra is not only a great day out for aviation enthusiasts, but for everyone who enjoys a big festival or event. We’d love to see more people from our region attend and encourage you to come along and enjoy yourself in May,” said Mark Bright.
