Re: Central Coast Airfest ‘23 Oct 14-15th

A couple of nice additions to the flying with Bernie Vasquez’ razorback P-47 and the Lewis C-121.

Also, with the govt shutdown temporarily averted looks like the mil demo’s are still good to go too.

That is a programme that we’ll look back in in future years and think ‘wish we still had display programmes like this now’.
Well done to Pete R and the team for the spadework to make this happen.
Hope everybody enjoys the weekend.

Came in on the red route at 7.15-7.30 and didn’t stop at all.
O2 signal fine all morning. 4G and all working fine albeit a little slow in showground.
