Statement from Bray Summerfest

Sunday 5th August 2007: Organisers of Bray Summerfest 2007 have announced that this afternoon's Bray Air Display, due to begin at 3pm, has been postponed due to the adverse weather conditions being experienced across the country today.

The event, which is sponsored by Croatia Tours and The Porterhouse Brewing Company, has been rescheduled to take place at Bray Seafront on Sunday 2nd September, beginning 3pm.

The organisers of Bray Summerfest look forward to presenting the cream of Irish aerobatics, headlined by the elite piloting talent of the Irish Air Corps, at the rescheduled air display event in four weeks time.

The 2007 Bray Air Display is a unique first-ever all-Irish aerobatic event, with displays and aerobatic performances headlined by the Irish Air Corps, the Irish Army Black Knights Parachute Display Team, a Sikorsky S-61N demonstration by Coast Guard SAR, appearances by the soon-to-be-decommissioned Aerospatiale Alouette III plus thrilling appearances by leading Irish aerobatic specialists.

The rescheduled event on Sunday 2nd September 2007 promises two hours of aerobatic thrills against the magnificent backdrop of Bray Seafront and Bray Head to entertain all the family as well as die-hard air enthusiasts.

Statement ends

compared to the show in 2005 it was a bit of a disapointment...no jets, no smoke kitted aircraft, alot of delays. was it the summer festival people who did the organising?...what would it have been like without the air cor??

Yeah, I have to agree with V9..was quite disappointed with the display... the 2 displays I was looking forward to most didnt deliver for me. Dave's Extra was first (first time seeing him too) - he had great moves but smoke contrails really would have helped him.

Id never seen the PC9s do that either... split from a 4-man formation after 2 passes and leave a solo pilot for 10 odd minutes. I was always expecting the other 3 to re-ammerge but they never did :?

The best act I thought was the Alouette :lol: Some pretty crazy manoeuvres; at one stage I thought they were going for a dip!

Thanks anyway Mark for the Programme, kept me occupied reading during all the delays / breaks between displays :D

I have to take issue with your comment Victor9,

Bray was a new display for the people of the east coast. It is not in competition with the Salthill Airshow which Brian Mc Grath has built into a world class event from small beginnings.

It is targeting primarily a family market with the army ground display etc

Unlike previous airshows all bills have been paid, Bray Town Council are delighted with the professionalism of the organising team.

Bray Air Display was a unique opportunity for Irish Civilian Pilots to display an will be a focal point for future displays.

The 2007 event was run with a minimal budget as no major funding was sourced given event licence difficulties and late cancellation with an airshow in 2006. We hope to improve the product in 2008.

As a first event the organisers, participants etc did a great job.
