Coastal Air Show coming to ILM April 16-17

WILMINGTON, NC (NEWS RELEASE) – ILM proudly announces that America’s newest Jet Team – “HEAVY METAL” – along with a variety of other performances, including the North American Aero Shell T-6 Texans, the Black Daggers Parachute Team, a jet car, military and aerobatic demonstrations, a children’s area, and lots of ground static displays will be performing at this year’s event.

In no uncertain terms, air shows provide the greatest entertainment available to families within their communities. When compared to other entertainment options, air shows are a small fraction of the cost while delivering an experience that no child, nor adult for that matter, is soon to forget. Air shows deliver a multi-faceted experience that touch all of the senses – military jets traveling at near-supersonic speed and aerobatic performances that defy gravity and challenge the imagination; a collection of modern and vintage aircraft for spectators to explore; free inflatable climbing structures for kids sponsored by GE and all virtual-type “rides” for the young and young-at-heart; and an assortment of cuisine.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at local BB&T branches and online at

and or at the gate the day of the event.

Volunteers are needed in all areas. For additional information, please e-mail Bob Tibbetts at:
