Prestwick World Festival of Flight - starts 30 Aug 2013

Fri 30 Aug to Sun 8 Sept 2013 A stunning Festival of Flight is set to celebrate the history of aviation at Prestwick. Organisers plan to make a dramatic air show the highlight of the 10-day event,. And a range of other attractions, including a film festival at the Gaiety, could also form part of the programme. Curators Angela Wrapson and George Kerevan say they hope to revive the region’s passion for its rich aviation history. Angela revealed: “Prestwick is a name that is synonymous around the world with flight. “When you look back through its timeline, so many important things have happened here. “So an event like this could have international significance for Ayrshire and far beyond.” Organisers hope to run a number of fringe events, with an aviation-themed fashion show and a comic and book festival among the plans.
