Air Show 2007

We held our 2007 Air Show on Sunday 24 June.

 

It was a great success with superb flying displays. We were very lucky with the weather with the rain stayed away until after the show had finished.

 

We have added a few photographs. We are very grateful to Wayne Fivey, David Donaldson and Shaun Sowden for these.
