Air Show a success

| November 4, 2013

COSHOCTON – Coshocton Airport Administrator Bethel Toler reported that the 2013 Wings Over Coshocton Air Show was a success.

Toler said, “The Air Show went real well. The only bad thing was that we had to cancel on Saturday due to the weather. That really worried us going into Saturday because we have never done that before. Actually it turned out really well. We approximated that we had a little over 2,500 people, which is good. Had it been on Saturday we had calls from the northern part of the state and everywhere in Ohio, we would probably had another 8,000 or 9,000 people.”

“We were in the black with it so you can’t ask for much more. We didn’t go in the red and everyone’s happy. That was the main goal since we had to cancel on Saturday to have a good show plus.”

Toler talked about all of the volunteers that helped make the transition from Saturday to Sunday, “I don’t think there are any other people than Coshocton that really goes out for events like this and volunteers their time to help and do such a good job. The sponsors – that was unbelievable for the air show. We had a lot of sponsors and we had a lot of in kind gifts and just tremendous.”

“The next air show will be in 2015 – Sept. 12-13 – if everything works out it will be a two day show. It will be great.”

“Jason Flood did an excellent show – and actually he got certified for a lower altitude after doing our show – he was rated by an examiner so he got his license to go lower. The one that we added was the extra 300 – the gentleman from Israel – a tremendous act – you will probably see him again for sure at our next show.”

Connie Toler said, “I’m most grateful to all the volunteers and especially all those that came back on Sunday – most everyone came back. We didn’t have a lot of problems – the radio communications between everybody was just – it was practically silent all day – it was a good show. We just appreciated everyone’s help.”
