The skies above Ayr's waterfront will be set ablaze by Airborne Pyrotechnics as part of the evening flying programme scheduled for Friday, 8 September.

Airborne Pyrotechnics' team, armed with LED lights and pyrotechnics mounted on their wingtips, will perform a graceful dual aircraft formation exhibition. This display will highlight the adept piloting skills of their aviators, Tim and Tom Dews.

This dynamic father-and-son duo will also enchant spectators on Saturday, 9 September with their daylight display. The pyrotechnics will be replaced with smoke during this performance, providing festival attendees with a more detailed view of their remarkable Grob 109b motor gliders.

Crafted from exceedingly lightweight yet robust composite materials, these aircraft function as highly efficient hybrids. They possess the capacity to fly both like conventional aeroplanes and gliders.

Dr Geoff Coxon, CEO of theSKYLAB, stated: "We are extremely fortunate to have secured Airborne Pyrotechnics to participate at the 2023 Ayr Show. The pilots will deliver a truly spectacular performance that will literally light up the event."

Councillor Alec Clark, South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Tourism, Culture, and Rural Affairs, expressed: "Festival goers are in for a real treat when Airborne Pyrotechnics take to the sky. Adults and children alike will be transfixed by the father and son team's breath-taking performances."

Councillor Brian Connolly, the Council's Portfolio Holder for Sport and Leisure, commented: "Anyone who has seen Airborne Pyrotechnics in action will know what a jaw-dropping show they put on. I can't wait to see their performances live, and I'm delighted the team will be able to make both daytime and evening appearances during the festival."

Councillor Martin Dowey, Leader of South Ayrshire Council, shared: "It's fantastic to be able to confirm yet another display for the International Ayr Show - Festival of Flight. Airborne Pyrotechnics are a great addition to what's already shaping up to be an impressive line-up."

The three-day festival, taking place from 8 - 10 September, will also offer an array of fantastic family entertainment and attractions.
