Up, up and away…

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS - GOITSEMANG TLHABYE

ED­U­CA­TION, dare­devil stunts from bik­ers jump­ing over low-fly­ing planes, split-sec­ond trac­tor runs, sky­divers in for­ma­tion and avi­a­tion dis­plays all came to­gether at the Won­der­boom Air­link Adren­a­line Show over the week­end.

Hun­dreds of spec­ta­tors at­tend­ing the show were not only wowed by stunts from bik­ers and light air­craft, but could also look at vin­tage and new­model cars, planes and a ro­bot statue.

There was a food court which had rev­ellers en­ticed by del­i­ca­cies from craft ice-cream, smooth­ies, spi­ral potato chips and the Span­ish dish chur­ros.

The show also pro­vided can­cer com­mu­nity carer PinkDrive an op­por­tu­nity to launch its new PinkFly cam­paign.

The cam­paign aimed to en­cour­age the avi­a­tion in­dus­try to sup­port it with much-needed fund­ing and to cre­ate fur­ther aware­ness for the PinkDrive or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Gert Schoe­man, founder of PinkFly, said: “We are ex­cited to be part of this show and ex­tremely grate­ful to the or­gan­is­ers for af­ford­ing PinkFly the op­por­tu­nity to be present.

“We are con­fi­dent that our pres­ence will add value to all who visit the show.”
