飋鯗 China 2012
In August 2012, the team has been specially selected by The People’s Government of Shenyang to be the main attraction at the Shenyang City Air display 2012, as well as working closely with AOPA China to help promote the budding new General Aviation industry that is in its infancy in China.
The team was last in China during 2010, based out of Dazu province near the 34 million person city of Chongqing where they were the main attraction during the 2010 China Dazu International Aviation Sports Tourism Festival.
The owner and director of the event management company running these events, Well Keep International Ltd (Hong Kong) WKI, Mr Jiang Qionghui commented,
“It is with great pleasure that the Yakovlevs are returning to China during 2012, they were very well received in 2010 and their professionalism and hard work has left a long lasting impression on the people here in China”.
This year the event is being held in Faku County, near the city of Shenyang close to the North Korean border.
“ It’s fantastic that we have been invited back, the Team pulled out all the stops in 2010, working around the clock to make sure that the aircraft were ready and that the show was something really special. We are looking forward to the new venue up in the North East of the country, but I need to make sure my navigation is up to speed having the North Korean border so close.”
The Team will be carrying out a number of different display during the period 22nd to 27th August, including the traditional 4 ship display, as well as 2 ship and special spectacular solo displays created especially for this Chinese venue.
For those concerned that the Yakovlevs will not be around in the UK during 2012, don’t worry, we have 2 aircraft that will remaining behind and will be continuing to fly the flag here in the UK carrying out many displays and continuing to thrill the crowds while the other 4 aircraft are away in the Far east.
