Welcome to the 2017 Flying Proms!

The Military Aviation Museum is hosting The Flying Proms Symphony Air Show on Saturday, June 10th, at the Military Aviation Museum in Pungo. Gates open at 3 p.m. with the concert starting at 7 p.m.

Now in its 7th installment, The Flying Proms offers guests a truly unique experience. Getting its roots from the United Kingdom‘s traditional Proms, the Military Aviation Museum’s Flying Proms is the only event of its kind in North America. The museum is pleased to have Symphonicity back as the orchestral partner for this year’s event.

The first half of the evening’s entertainment will feature aerial displays from the museum’s collection of historical aircraft, such as the DeHavilland Mosquito and Messerschmitt Bf-109, accompanied by musical selections from popular aviation-themed movies. As dusk falls, and the planes land, the second half of the performance will commence, featuring an assortment of patriotic and pops music. Festivities culminate with a fireworks finale provided by Zambelli Fireworks.

Mark your calendars now for the 2017 Flying Proms at the Military Aviation Museum. Advanced ticket sales are going on now. Get your discounted tickets while they last!

A Message from Mike Potter, Museum Director, Military Aviation Museum

The Military Aviation Museum has been a growing part of the Virginia Beach scene for over a decade now, so I know that many of you with us today for our Flying Proms are indeed "friends of the family", and we're delighted that you are here. For those of you discovering us for the first time, I sincerely hope this will be just the start of a great friendship.

Our museum is a very unique venue, and nothing we do throughout the year is quite as special as these "Proms". I believe I'm safe in saying that there is nowhere else that you can visist with dinosaurs, watch wonderful airplanes arc gracefully in the sky, listen to world-class musicians playing your favorite music, indulge in a great pinic, sip your favorite adult beverage, and watch a stellar fireworks display...all while enjoying the serene and lovely southern Virignia Beach countryside!
