After one year of absence due to a lack of sponsoring, the Ottawa
air show returned this year at nearby Carp airport, with
an interesting line-up. Apparently, funding is still a problem, as
the entrance fee was a staggering $32.50! Just imagine having
paid this fee only to find out that the flying displays for Saturday
were cancelled because of heavy rain and a low cloud base.
The second day of the show was blessed with good weather
conditions, allowing the warbirds to show off their great shapes
and sounds. Unfortunately, the flying display could only be
watched with backlight as the public is situated to the north
side of the runway and the south side of the airfield is closed
off completely.
