Vampires Set to Fly into Robins AFB

Staff Report From Middle Georgia CEO

Wednesday, September 11th, 2019

Team Robins is opening its gates Sept. 28 and 29 to anyone – including a vampire or two.

The show, which will feature the renowned U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and F-22 demonstration teams, will also feature civilian acts to help keep the action moving.

Vampire Air Shows is one of those acts, and it’s set to keep the crowd on its feet, their eyes focused on the sky.

“Vampire Airshows’ mission and our Airshow is about the merging of entertainment and education,” according to the team’s website at “The Vampire brings speed, noise, Jet Warbird aerobatics and a profile that grabs the audiences’ attention.”

While Jerry "Vlad" Conley flies the aircraft, his banter with the announcer draws the crowd into learning about the aircraft. The aircraft is fully aerobatic performing rolls, Cuban eights, shark tooths, inverted flight, high speed passes, and all with a killer smoke system.

The website proudly points out that “The Vampire, being the beginning of all modern jet aviation, is truly inspiring to watch fly.”
