International Airshow at Ysterplaat Airforce Base Information

South Africa's biggest air show at Ysterplaat in Cape Town provides great airborne entertainment in 2010 in its last year!

Africa’s largest aerospace, defence, and security exhibition is moving to what many have called the world’s most beautiful city. Africa Aerospace & Defence – AAD 2010– will be held for the last time in Cape Town from 21 - 25 September 2010.

The 2010 Ysterplaat Airshow programme is difficult to structure precisely due to the nature of an air show, but you can expect to be wowed all day long by spectacular airborne trickery from some of the world’s greatest airplanes.

35 countries, 350 exhibitors!

The organisers of AAD2010 hope to surpass the previous numbers of some 350 exhibiting companies from 35 countries. Some 80 foreign delegations from around the world have been invited, many from Africa, as well as the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.

“Visitors will be pleasantly surprised by the enhanced facilities at AFB Ysterplaat,” Van Hees explains.

The first three days are dedicated trade days for professionals and media, with 24 and 25 September open to the public. Flying displays during these two days are once again envisaged, although the exact aircraft types will only be confirmed at a later date.

The International Ysterplaat Airshow is having its final flight(s) in Cape Town as it bids farewell to the Mother City and makes its way back home to the Waterkloof Airfield in Pretoria which has been under reconscruction for the past few years.

Ysterplaat is still in discussion to host a smaller scaled airshow on a biannual basis.

Feast your eyes! Expect some noise!

 

For the ladies. If you aren't really into aeroplanes there is no need to sigh when your other half wants to drag you there because the US Marines will be as much as a sight for you as the aircrafts are for the men! And what woman can say that men in uniform is not much to look at?

From Wasps to Gripens - its enough to get the heart race up at this year's Ysterplaat Airshow.
