Things are heating up for the Leaseweb Texel Airshow on the 28th of July! While it’s still more than a month away, we’re quite busy making all the arrangements for our guests, making sure they’ll have a wonderful experience. Here’s a quick overview of what to expect on that summer day and how you can win a VIP treatment as a guest of Leaseweb.
Wing walking, ‘dog fighting’ and more
We’re very proud of the line-up this year, with many air crafts from different eras paying Texel International Airport a visit. A few of the highlights:
- Breitling will attend with two demo teams: the incredible Breitling Jet Team and their seven Albatros jets, and the Breitling Wing Walkers, whose name is a clear hint of the awesome antics you can expect
- Pat O’Brien’s Flying Circus will perform classic aerial stunts, such as attempting to land on a moving trailer being pulled by a car
- A Hawker fury will engage in a dog fight (slang for aerial combat) with a P-51 Mustang, letting their engines roar in the sky. Many other historically important aircraft will also fly to the show, including a Spitfire, Beachcraft 18 and more
- Even more roaring engines: a Dutch F-16 will attend as a representative of the Royal Dutch Air Force. We guarantee you will be wowed by the spectacular maneuvers this jet will display!
These are just a few of the names and types that will be showcased, you can check out the program, which is nearly final, on the official Leaseweb Texel Airshow website.
75 years of Texel International Airport
Did you know Texel International Airport opened 75 years ago? To commemorate this occasion, Lieutenant General Schnitger of the Royal Dutch Air Force, and Peter Hartmann, president of the Royal Dutch Airline, will present a special book in honor of the jubilee to Christina Giskes, the mayor of Texel, and Martin Schröder, founder of Martinair.
