Amsterdam to get the world’s first drone air show

Air shows are typically made up of all sorts of military or civilian aircraft flying around doing their thing. In Amsterdam an air show is coming that has not one normal aircraft. This entire air show is made up of drones and the drones are festooned with lights. The show is called Air and will be held at the Amsterdam Arena.

The event is organized by an event planning company called Fjuze in collaboration with the Royal Netherlands Air Force. Exactly what will happen at the show is unknown, but the website touting the show says, “In this high-energy and explosive show, drones will take centre stage to bring a collaboration and fusion of music, video, projections, and special effects,” it continues. “Air allows you to experience a variety of ballet and battles, races and lasers, circus, illusions and most of all magic from hundreds of drones.”

It isn’t exactly clear what you could expect, but thankfully, there is a trailer for the show and it looks interesting. The drones are fitted with lasers and projectors that almost appear to allow the drones to draw in the air.

It’s unclear exactly when the show will be held, the website only says soon. Check out the video trailer to see what you can expect at the show. The trailer certainly looks cool. There is no word at this time on if the show will come to other parts of the world.
