A letter published in the Abbotsford News of Aug. 16 was written by a person who wants the Abbotsford Air Show discontinued.
This would deprive tens of thousands of spectators from the thrills and excitement of performances by those gallant young men in their flying machines, because this person is frustrated by the noise.
Consider this, frustrated person – many airfields are a hundred years old and were located many miles from human habitation. These airfields were used by early inventors and experimenters, and that led to today’s modern aircraft.
Gradually people built houses closer and closer to these airfields in the full knowledge there would be aircraft noise, but they complained anyway.
Three days of an air show in a year is entertainment for the public, not a frustration.
There is, of course, a simple solution for you, frustrated person – take a short vacation away from Abbotsford’s air show.
