Brightening skies held hope for air show organizers as of early Saturday afternoon. When low cloud cover lifts, more of the planes expected for performances will be able to land.
Although Saturday afternoon performances are unlikely to take place, the air show still has plenty of attractions. A marketplace beneath the large tent has representatives from many organizations, concession stands are readying for the crowds, there is a static display of private planes and a Show n' Shine featuring the Sou'West Nova Bikers Association.
The lead jet for the Snowbirds 431 demonstration squadron arrived shortly after noon and the others are expected to land later today.
Gates are open today (Saturday) until 6 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
Sunday's forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of 18 with 20 km./hr. winds.
Walk-ins are $5/day, children under five are free. Private vehicles (up to seven seats) are $25 inc. passengers.
