After the sun set April 24 on AOPA Day at Sun ’n Fun, the night sky came alive—with the day’s second airshow.
Wait a minute. A night airshow?
You better believe it. Airplanes, a helicopter, and even the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachute team participated in the event, which is a Sun ’n Fun tradition. These nocturnal airshow acts employed a combination of pyrotechnics and special lighting so an appreciative audience could watch them pirouette across the sky.
A fireworks display marked the conclusion of the night airshow.
The accompanying slideshow, photographed by AOPA Pilot Editor Mike Collins, shows the view from the Sun ’n Fun flight line.
The next stop is Putrajaya, Malaysia, on May 17 and 18 for the 2014 Red Bill Air Race World Championship, following an “electrifying” contest in Rovinj, Croatia.
AOPA Foundation President Bruce Landsberg talks with AOPA Senior Vice President of Government Affairs and Advocacy Jim Coon on his first 100 days and the top advocacy issues confronting AOPA.
