WELCOME TO WINGS OVER ILLAWARRA 2015 - CANCELLED
It is with a very heavy heart that the decision has been made to cancel Wings Over Illawarra 2015.
The record breaking rain during April has made the airport grounds extremely water logged. We did think that if the rain could ease off during this last week we would be able to relocate most of the exhibits and stalls to higher ground. Last night we received another 25mls of rain. This has meant that the airfield is now totally unusable, unsafe and in no state to be able to have general public access safely.
We know that a lot of people have pre-purchased tickets for the event and these tickets will be refunded through Eventopia. The refund process may take a while so I ask you all to please be patient.
Unfortunately it is impossible to postpone an airshow, it must be cancelled. It takes time to obtain the approvals through the Civil Aviation Safety Authority for one particular date. Defence Force assets are applied for 2 years in advance for one particular date. Unfortunately this is the process and as such we can’t just make it another date.
We are so sorry and really wish that this was not the case. We are all devastated.
So much planning, excitement and anticipation has gone into this event, including our hearts and souls. Seems we do not have much luck with weather.
As you can appreciate we have many people to contact and so we would appreciate it if you could try to avoid telephoning us today.
Thank you all in advance for your understanding
Mark and Kerry Bright
