CAP members support air show in spite of weather

Janesville, Wis. – A rainy weekend dampened the spirits and attendance of 2012 ABC Supply Southern Wisconsin AirFEST held at the Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport in Janesville on Memorial Day weekend.  Members of the Rock County Composite Squadron worked the air show on Saturday and were helped by members of the Col Sac and 153rd Madison Composite Squadrons on Sunday.

Helping with vehicle parking, members also staffed a CAP information and Drug Demand Reduction booth under the wing of the KC-135.

Friday’s scheduled air show was cancelled due to rain while Saturday’s attendance estimated to be about 8,000 was also affected by the stormy weather.  The extreme heat and humidity saw even fewer people in attendance on Sunday, but the air show was able to go on.
