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.
