Wilson Airport to go into festival mood during upcoming Air Show weekend


(Posted 28th November 2013)

The Kenya Breweries sponsored ‘Tusker Air Show’ is returning to Nairobi’s Wilson Airport on the weekend of 14th and 15th of December, offering two days of aerial spectacles, acrobatic flying, parachuting and more for those making their way to Africa’s busiest airport. Coinciding with the long holiday weekend, on December 12th will Kenya celebrate their 50th year of Independence from Britain, the show is the aviation sector’s contribution towards the Golden Jubilee by showcasing how far the industry has come over the past 5 decades. Organizer is the Aero Club of East Africa, headquartered at Wilson Airport and has already been cited as Africa’s biggest air show ever.

Performing will the Kenya Air Force and the South African Air Force besides a host of private performances, fly pasts and more from participants across the continent and beyond.

The Aero Club will put up a tented ‘Air Show Village’, a food court and countless aircraft will be on static display with close up views and visits possible for the up to 20.000 participants expected to come to Wilson. Kenya’s top bands and music performers will give the audio background and on the evening of the closing day, 15th December, will fireworks entertain the crowds still in situ. This is truly a not to be missed event though there will be plenty of other performances during the week of Independence Day and the following weekend, before Kenya then goes into the holiday mode for Christmas and New Year.
