Strange cancelling because of runway repair. CU has defo more than one runway or is the plan to refurb all? If so then a few tax payers hard earned will be payed out this year. Especially as CU is a dedicated Helo base. If not solely RW then surely the FW could migrate to VL.
Why not have a purely RW air day. Nah!!! Methinks this is the start of one Naval Air Day per year. VL - 2012, CU - 2013 then bi-annually at the two air stations there after. :thumbup:
That is my theory and I'm sticking to it!!!!! :boogie: You know it makes sense - $$$$$$
It's been known for a while that Air Day at CU is dead, the annuncement is no surprise. There are a number of rumours doing the rounds as to why Airday 2012 is cancelled but I wouldn't bes surprised if CU never holds one again, the majority have been a major washout in the last few years, 2011 was an unmitigated disaster.
It is sad to see it go but to be honest VL and CU airdays are not a patch on what they once were anyway, not by a country mile.
