After 2years of weather being variable with winds and rain limiting the show, in 2016 the weather gods finally gave us suitable airshow weather – eventually.Both days had cloud and some rain on Saturday which eventually disappeared into clear blue sky and same for Sunday. Organisers Mark and Kerry Bright have remained very committed to the airshow despite the past 2 years, so it was great to see their hard efforts rewarded with a large crowd on both days. The airshow brought together HARS aircraft, local warbirds, general aviation and defence alongside stalls and community groups for a overall fun day out for people.
A good selection of warbirds were on show in 2016 covering WW2, Korean War era, Vietnam era – fighters, trainers and bombers. Unfortunately one of the major stars of the show, the Albury based FW-190 was unable to make it so maybe next year.
