Lehigh Valley, PA – The 2014 Sands Lehigh Valley Airshow presented by Service Electric is guaranteed to rival the former as this year’s show is set to take flight August 23 & 24.
In addition to the all-woman’s skydiving team, the Misty Blues, the 4CE demo team is set to take the stage at this year’s show. Bill Stein is back in action after his fight against cancer kept him grounded last year. This complete, 4-ship team will offer even more thrills for 2014.
New for 2014, is the addition of both the Canadian Harvards Aerobatic Team and Gene Soucy and Teresa Stoke’s wing-walking and ShowCat act! Gene’s ShowCat biplane solo makes the crowds go wild, and his one-wheel landing proves the show isn’t over until the big kitty purrs. Wingwalker Teresa Stokes will thrill the crowd as she climbs about the wings of the ShowCat, piloted by Soucy. Anything is possible with these two in the air!
Also new this year is the Canadian Harvards Aerobatic Team. Flying a three-ship formation of T-6’s, the Harvard’s are sure to demonstrate some of the best aerobatic formations in the industry in these stunning vintage WWII aircraft. The T-6 is sure to be a crowd pleaser- with it’s smoke and sound enhancing the airshow spectator experience. Don’t miss your chance to hear the “Harvard Roar” overhead at this year’s show!
“The 2013 airshow was very successful and our goal is to make 2014 even more enjoyable for the community. This year’s performer lineup is the first step, and with the lifting of the sequestration, we hope to have a combination of military fly-bys and static aircraft as well”, said Executive Director, Charles Everett. More announcements are on the horizon for this show. Stay tuned…
