F-16s set for dazzling show at BIC National Day festival




Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) yesterday announced the addition of a breathtaking air show featuring F-16 fighter planes to the action-packed BIC National Day Festival.

The show will be organised in co-operation with the Bahrain Defence Force and the Royal Bahrain Air Force.

The five-day festival, from today until Wednesday at the BIC in Sakhir, will have a lot on offer for people of all ages.

F-16 jet planes will be putting on a show for three days of the festival. They will first take to the skies tonight, and will return to perform again on the final two days on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The festival is being held with the support of His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister. It follows up on the success of last year’s event at the BIC, which attracted more than 28,000 people over five days.

The event will provide visitors a chance to enjoy an entire week of non-stop fun and entertainment at the circuit. Gates will be open from 4pm to 10pm each day and entrance is free.

A spectacular display of parachute jumps will also be performed during the festival. On Sunday and Monday, a group of acrobats will be showcasing their parachuting skills.

The events during the festival include cultural shows, children’s games and activities, shopping in a traditional market, various exhibition stalls and a series of live musical performances by some of the biggest entertainers from the Gulf.

Another major attraction will be a fireworks display on the eve of the National Day.
