2012 Air Expo

Posted September 22, 2012 By Jolene Craig, Parkersburg News and Sentinel

It’s almost show time for the 2012 Air Expo to be held Sunday, October 14. The event, held at the Wood County Airport in Parkersburg, West Virginia is open to the public and is free. Preferred seating areas are available with paid admission.

“We are rolling into the final stages,” said co-chair of the event Donna Rusche. “We’re still taking sponsors and are looking for more volunteers.”

This year’s air show is expected to be different from the previous events at the airport with new performers, food vendors and shuttle locations.

Performers will include wing walker Jane Wicker, the Iron Eagles, an aerobatic team and Kirk Wicker, who performs as the “flying farmer.” There will also be the Trojan Horsemen, Sky Soldiers and remote controllers Sky Sharks.

To appeal to children, there will be a Kidz Zone with “Adventures in Aviation” inflatables, a climbing wall and other aviation-oriented activities.

 To allow as many people to attend the event as possible, there will be several shuttle points on both sides of the Ohio River.
