Give your Dreams some Wings on the 2nd of June 2018

The Total Air Newcastle Airshow will take place on the 2nd of June 2018. The Airshow is the only Airshow in KZN.

The South African Airforce will be at the Total Air Newcastle Airshow in full force. The following commitments from SAAF are

A109, Gripen, Silver Falcons, Oryx, Cassa

Golden Eagles parrachute jumpers.

The Gripen will be one of the higlights of the day.

Other acrobatic teams and individual performances will also be on display.

Just Amusements Merry Go Round will also be at the Total Airshow to entertain young and old.

The Silver Falcons – a history

In 1953 an aerobatic team known as the ‘Bumbling Bees’ was founded to represent the South African Air Force by flying formation aerobatics in De Havviland Vampires.

This same team is today known as the Silver Falcons, a team of top notch pilots who showcase the very best in aerobatic flying in the country.

History in the making
The Bumbling Bees team was disbanded in 1958 and only reinstated in 1958, this time flying the Aermacchi MB-326 ‘Impala’ MK I – the newly acquired SAAF het trainer.

Nigel Hopkins at a glance

Another pilot that is sure to entertain at the Newcastle Airshow this year is Nigel Hopkins.

Nigel was born in Port Elizabeth, attended school in Pretoria and currently resides in Centurion with his wife and three daughters.

On the rare occasion that he's not flying, you may find Nigel water skiing or playing golf.

Nigel's father is a pilot and aviation enthusiast, so Nigel grew up with aviation. His weekends were spent at parachute clubs and air shows.

Menno Parsons and his pride and joy, the P-51 Mustang Sally

Arguably one of the biggest attractions at this years’ Newcastle Airshow will be Menno Parsons and his pride and joy, the P-51 Mustang Sally.

Roaring, spitting and kicking the V12 soundtrack of this plane, described by many as the most beautiful ever made, is guaranteed to leave the hairs on your neck stand up.

Parsons, one of the main sponsors this year, is a man whose reputation preceeds him.

He has one of the finest aircraft collections in the country, if not the world, and is never shy to show it off.
