Commentary at Wings Over Illawarra 2017

WOI Logo
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). It was a great show with over 30,000 people in attendance across the 6th & 7th of May. 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.

In September 2012 the team from Southern Skies Online Media packed their full airshow PA and remote studio into a pair of trucks & drove for 10 hours up to Narromine, New South Wales for the AusFly event.

Combining our aviation talent with our audio gear & remote broadcast equipment, we were able to provide a full airshow PA system that included a low-power broadcast radio and live stream to the Internet. Running for three days, we conducted interviews, played pre-recorded content and ran the commentary during each day’s air displays.

Covering a full flight line, display area and trade hall, we kept the audience informed & entertained throughout the event. We also provided the PA system for the dinner event at the end of the show.
