Mind-Blowing Arkansas Airshow to Feature a Twilight Show
If you haven't heard "Wings Over Bryant," an incredible air show in Arkansas near Little Rock is slated for June 24-25. Originally, it was going to be a one day show but because of its popularity a second show has been added. "The Twilight Show" on Friday, June 24.
The all-new aerial acrobatic air show is the only one scheduled in Arkansas this year and will be at the Saline County Regional Airport in Bryant. I've been to several airshows in my lifetime but I have never seen a twilight air show which is fast becoming a fan favorite. All the events begin around dusk and the experience is so much different than a day show because of the lights and theatrics it takes to pull off one of these shows.
Some of the best performers and aerial stunt entertainers will leave you mesmerized as you witness there spectacular aerial feats.
The Friday Night show will feature skydivers to open the show with our National Anthem followed by a preview from Team AeroShell, the number one act in the country.

Four AT-6 Texans will be performing an array of flight maneuvers that includes classic aerobatic moves in close formation.
One of the top acrobatic pilots Stephen Covington will show off his impressive stunts in the air while flying a modified Pitts S2S, known as the Raptor.
Following Stephen will be an amazing performance from the Bulldog Formation Flight Team and this is just the beginning of the twilight show.
"Aftershock," a super modified firetruck will blast down the runway at 400 mph with a huge plume of smoke and flames as it comes to a stop by a parachute. Can you imagine what this is going to look like at twilight?
How do you follow that up?
The Provost Jet Acro featuring Rich Dawe, the Warbirds in Action, the P-51 Mustang Acro and many more and that's just the first evening of "Wings Over Bryant." Both shows begin with skydivers and end with a skydiving team in this power-packed show.
This is a must-see event this summer! Purchase your tickets at wingsoverbryant.com., or at any Big Red store. All kids 12 and under get free admission. There will also be a food truck area, displays of aircraft, various booths, and more including a Lil’ Aviators area that cost a additional fee.
Organizers and the City of Bryant is hoping to make this a destination event in the state as they structure this air show after the very popular air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
From Texarkana, take I-30 East, Bryant is around 126 miles straight down the interstate.
