Their newly acquired Corsair was still in Oshkosh (WI) and there were even less trainers than with the previous edition. The public was not contained to VWC’s premises and numerous light aircraft and homebuilts were displayed on Gatineau’s main apron as well. The gates were open from 10.00 am to 02.00 pm and the entrance was free. Flying activities could be viewed with perfect weather conditions.
