The Lismore air show was originally scheduled for earlier in 2017 but, due to extreme weather conditions and flooding, was deferred until Saturday 29th July. Grant travelled to Lismore with the Paul Bennet Air Shows team to provide commentary for the event. It was a spectacular event which drew a good crowd of people (estimated as 4,000 to 6,000) under clear blue skies and light winds.
Steve and Grant joined Ando to once again provide commentary for the Wings Over Illawarra air show at the Illawarra Regional Airport just south of Wollongong, NSW (near Sydney).

Over the two day event Grant & Steve’s dulcet tones provided information and discussion as the various displays took place. Meanwhile, Steven Pam was shooting live streaming video from high on the main grandstand to air show fans from around the world.
Yet another fantastic experience and we’re looking forward to next year’s event which is scheduled for the 5th & 6th of May, 2018.
