Avalon Airport Set To Light Up

The Boeing Company will once again be the major sponsor for the spectacular 'Friday Night Alight' flying display at the Australian International Airshow 2009. Airshows Downunder CEO, Ian Honnery, says he's delighted to have the support of The Boeing Company. "Boeing is a major player in the international aerospace community and its support for the flying display will ensure it will be as spectacular as ever, " Mr Honnery says. The 'Friday Night Alight' flying display is an unforgettable experience and unique to the Australian International Airshow.

Director of Communications in Australia/New Zealand, Ken Morton, says The Boeing Company is proud to be part of the event. "Friday Night Alight is a great feature of the Australian International Airshow and we're proud to bring the event to life again."

The Boeing Friday Flying Display will feature an amazing array of military aircraft and artistic aerobatics by the world's best. As darkness falls, up to 30 parachutes will drop from the heavens in a mass display, then the 'Night Alight Finale' will explode into action, lighting up the night sky with showers of golden sparks.

The much loved F-111 will perform its famous dump-and-burn and the evening will finish with a bang as world renowned American pyrotechnics wizard Rich Gibson fires up his famous 'Wall of Fire'. The 'Boeing Friday Flying Displays' and 'Night Alight Spectacular' are from approximately 3pm to 9pm on Friday March 13th. Gates open to the public from 8am to 6pm on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th of March.

The Australian International Airshow is presented with support from The Boeing Company, and its principal partners the Australian Department of Defence, the Government of Victoria, and the City
of Greater Geelong.
