Newcastle Airshow 2013

Seconds out round number two

The highly successful KZN Winter Airtour series started its second season in Newcastle. Around two years ago some visionary aviation minded thinkers found a willing sponsor in the KZN provincial government to bring aviation awareness to the people. Most rural inhabitants of our beautiful country seldom (or have never) seen an aircraft close-up, or even realise the benefits of aviation. This is the background to the KZN Winter Airtour.

2012 saw the first running of 6 airshows at various towns and cities within KZN, some that have never had an airshow before, or had been years since the last show. The success of the events, especially amongst some of the more remote destinations, more than justified the rationale behind the sponsoring and hosting these airshows. Who can forget the passion of the crowd in Ulundi during 2012?

And so on to 2013 and the opening event of the tour was once again held in Newcastle. Organised by Johan Pieters and Christo van der Vyver of Champ Marketing the Newcastle airshow is proving to be very popular. A large crowd  of around 6500 turned out in a very fresh and breezy early winter’s morning to be entertained by some of the best aviation display pilots in South Africa and they were not to be disappointed.
