Lake Tahoe Airshow pictures

LAKE TAHOE, California — Ed Rosiak, president of the California Pilots Association, attended Saturday’s (August 27) Lake Tahoe Airport‘s Airshow. Below are a few pictures from the ramp, and from Ed’s email to me, a few comments on the airport. “What is important to understand is that just a few years ago the South Lake Tahoe City Council was ignoring its airport, and allowing it to fall into a state of disrepair. Then a few years back a fire swept through the west side side of the Tahoe basin. Fire fighter aircraft were brought into TVL (Lake Tahoe Airport) and used to control the spread of the fire. Since then, the city council now understands the value of its airport, and invested in it. The annual airshow at TVL is proof that the municipality and community now value its airport.” See a few pictures from the airshow below. Thanks Ed.

    Lake in the Sky is a great community airport day and air show. The Mooney Ambassadors have been invited back year after year. We had 24 aircraft on display and participated in the air show as the opening act.
    As Ed mentioned, this airport had been at risk in the past. Through community events we can show that airports do make a good neighbor. We were able to help about 100 kids make paper airplanes and learn about the dynamics of flight. As well we got children and adults into our Mooney aircraft to hopefully inspire the love of flight.
    We will be back next year, and encourage all to attend the last weekend in August!
