Quesnel praises local Airshow

What Misters Fehr, Vahi and Pearce -- the Airshow Organizing Committee have created is a well-organized, first class summer event

Dear Editor:

 

 

Instead of seeing a large airshow in the lower mainland my wife and I recently attended the 2012 Vanderhoof Airshow accompanied by another couple. Both enthusiastic aviators we frequently attend airshows, as well as fly-ins throughout the province.

What we encountered in Vanderhoof was not only a small but fine show, but also a superb gourmet dinner with classy, top-notch entertainment followed by a hangar dance.

What Misters Fehr, Vahi and Pearce — the Airshow Organizing Committee have created is a well-organized, first class summer event that certainly puts Vanderhoof back on the map.

As former residents of your fine town we appreciated the warm Vanderhoof hospitality and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of a well-organized smaller event. Definitely a good reason to visit your town.

We will be back next year.
