The special event is set to mark Swansea’s 50th Anniversary and will be part of a series of events for the city.
The hot air balloons will tethered along Swansea beach and will conduct a night glow, where they fire their burners to light up the balloons, often in time to music and the Fireflies Display Team – two display aircraft featuring lights and pyrotechnics firing off their wings – will do a night-time display.
There are also plans for the Tigers parachute display team to do a night time jump.
The evening event will take place from 8:30pm on July 6th, day 1 of the airshow.
