The Flying Circus Air show
Every summer, from May to October, the Flying Circus comes to
Bealeton, Virginia. Although I have never personally been to the Flying Circus,
everyone I know who has visited says that it is quite an amazing show to see.
This past Sunday, May 6th was the kick off for this year’s Flying
Circus Air show. Some of the different aspects of the air show include watching
a wing walker as he hangs from his ankles below a biplane’s bottom wing as well
as a barnstormer hopping into a vintage biplane from a makeshift airfield. The
air show takes place every Sunday in Bealeton, Virginia from 2:30pm to 4:00pm. It
costs $10.00 for adults and $3.00 for children, ages 3-12.
In addition to the air show every Sunday, there are also several
other special events that take place throughout the summer. People are welcome
to partake in open cockpit airplane rides that costs anywhere from $70.00 to
$130.00 depending on what type of ride you want. New this summer is the Air
Balloon Festival that will take place on August 18 & 19. These rides will
be available for people to take from 7:00am – 9:00am and then again from 6:00pm
If you’re in the Warrenton area this summer and are looking for
something fun to do one Sunday afternoon, drive on down to Bealeton and check
out the Air show. Visit the website at www.flyingcircusairshow.com for
