Multiple aircraft confirmed for Portrush

Over the last week a number of aircraft have been confirmed for Airwaves Portrush on the 2nd & 3rd of September 2017.

 

First up is the fantastic Rich Goodwin and his Pitts Special aircraft that has had everyone watch in amazement as to what his aircraft can do! Rich Goodwin has been to Portrush a few times in the past and has become a massive crowd favourite.

Next up is the Huey and Loach helicopters which have become regular attendees of Portrush over the years. The helicopters are most famous for their service in the Vietnam war and both of these helicopters that will be on display actually saw service in Vietnam! They will also be joining the Wildcat on Static when not displaying!
