Madera, CA (Vocus) February 25, 2010
Event organizers are already hard at work making preparations for the Madera Air Show 2010, set for May 22-23.
“Dabuco, Inc. will bring this 2 day air show event back to Madera, California at the Madera Airport for all to enjoy,” said Joe Conway, who is putting the event together. “This air show will thrill spectators of all ages,” he said.
Conway expects the Madera Air Show to be the largest event of it’s kind to come to the Central Valley in over a decade. “We’ve got a tremendous lineup already planned, with many more acts in the works,” he said. “This is going to be an impressive event of which the people of Madera and the valley can be proud.”
Numerous acts are already lined up, with aerobatic performers, rare WWII bombers and fighters, as well as the A-10 West Cost Demonstration Team. “Madera is rich in military history and makes for a perfect, central location for the air show,” said Conway.
The Madera Air Show 2010 line-up includes world class performers & aircraft. Each day the air show will feature several other top performers such as Bill Cornick, John Collver, Spencer Suderman, the Silver Wings Wing walking Team, Doug Jardine, Tim Decker, Dr D’s Old-time aerobatics, Carl Liepold, and many current military aircraft & helicopters.
“There could also be a large Warbird representation including the P-38 Lightning, B-25 Bombers, P-51 Mustangs, Yak-11, one of the few remaining Japanese Zeros, P-40E, F6F-5 Hellcat, just to name a few,” said Conway.
Several of these legendary Warbirds and their pilots will be flying during the event. Other “Ground Activities” will include an Ultra light aircraft display, radio controlled model aircraft display with “in air” demonstrations, a kids zone with bounce houses and face painting, exhibitors, vendors and lots of food and drink will be available.
According to Conway, air shows are an increasingly popular pastime in America. “Air shows are the second most attended spectator sport in North America, second only to NASCAR. During the past decade, air shows had nearly twice the attendance figures of NFL football,” he said.
Conway anticipates that The Madera Air show 2010 will draw large crowds with an expected attendance level of 20,000 spectators over the course of the 2 day event.
The event’s main sponsor is the Madera Jet Center. “They have put a lot of money and effort towards making this happen,” said Conway.
