Air show set to fly again

Created on 01/12/2011 @ 15:03


Fears that June's weather hit Welshpool Air Show would be the last have been allayed with the news that the show will go on and the Red Arrows have been invited to attend again.
This year's show was badly affected by low cloud and rain causing many flights to be cancelled and the planned Red Arrows display to be curtailed.
The Arrows did fly over but were barely visible through the low cloud.
Air Show committee man John Morgan this week announced that the show would go ahead next year on June 17.
“We have decided to go ahead again despite the setbacks and Squadron Leader Albi Fox, the RAF community relations manager for Wales, has put in a request for the Red Arrows,” said Mr Morgan. “We are hoping that the our plight last this year with the weather will be appreciated by the Arrows and that they will agree to visit Welshpool in June.
“It is important that the show goes on and that it becomes a permanent feature in the calendar of events for Welshpool.”
