Swartkops Airshow

Unread post by Flyman » Sun Apr 07, 2019 7:38 pm

I Heard on Saturday whilst at LMB Swartkops air show has been postponed or cancelled. :evil:
The reason behind the decision is that it is the weekend before the National elections.

Any further info.

Swartkops is always a great show. Rand is good but is more a flea market than a air show. [-X [-X [-X

+1

Considering they ruined their apron by painting markers for the vendors stands for a one day a year event - its an airport, not a flea market
