Attendance Soars at Santa Rosa Air Show
Santa Rosa CA (August 30, 2010) – In spite of the soft economy attendance this year was
up 32% over 2009. The reasons for this
surge in attendance include outstanding military, civilian and warbird line
ups; enhanced advertising and PR campaigns and excellent air show weather.
The air show line up included military flight
demonstrations from the U.S. Air Force’s F-15E Strike Eagle, U.S. Navy’s FA-/18
Super Hornet and the Air Force Reserve C-17 “Globemaster III”. The civilian aerobatic lineup included Bill
Cornick, Spencer Suderman, Kent Pietsch, Doug Jardin, Vicky Benzing, Brian
Sanders and Greg Colyer. Warbirds
included eight P-51 Mustangs, three P-40 Warhawks, three T-28s, four T-6s and a
Hawker Sea Fury. Many additional aircraft
were on static display. The air show was
announced by Danny Clisham, famed Oshkosh and Reno Air Races announcer.
The Wings Over Wine Country Air Show is held the third
Saturday each August at the Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma
in Santa Rosa, CA. The 2011 air show will be held on August 20-21, 2011. Back
