Great support for airshow

LETTER

On behalf of the Gisborne Aviation Preservation Society and as director of our recent First Light Wings and Wheels airshow, I wish to thank all the people who volunteered, sponsored, exhibited or attended the event.

A long list of people helped us put on the airshow, and without our sponsors we would not have been able to either provide a suitable venue or manage the public who came and visited our facility.

The public really conducted themselves in a fantastic, positive manner — respecting the museum and the safety requirements needed at an airshow. Apart from one little miscreant who attempted to pinch some of the show vehicles’ emblems, everyone seemed appreciative of the effort the exhibitors put on.

Vehicle exhibitors included the Gisborne Vintage Motorcycle Club, the Gisborne Vintage Car Club, the Gisborne American Car Club, the Military Vehicle Club — including the enthusiasts from Wairoa who towed up a field gun — and also the Rolls Royce and Bentley club, all of whom put the shine into our show.

Of course, the owner of the Spitfire who agreed to it coming to Gisborne needs a big hand clap.

And finally, all our volunteers; it was a long day and everybody worked hard and well to make it happen — thanks heaps people!

Humbly and in deep appreciation,

Roger van der Zanden
