On Sunday afternoon March 18th, the First edition
of the Bronco Fan Day was organized at the airfield of Moorsele, to thank
all the fans for their great support we received during the airshow season.
The main goal was to have a cozy event and to gather everyone for a nice
afternoon after the long winter months. The Fan Day was held during the
Bronco ground crew training weekend so almost the whole team was present.
The weather was cloudy and some light rain was
falling when Tony flew to Bronco over to Moorsele, but soon after the sky
turned clear and everyone could enjoy the low winter sun. The Bronco was
nicely parked on the grass and the Bronco sales booth was erected near the
bar. It was a great pleasure to see that a lot of fans came to the airfield
to see the aircraft up-close and have a nice chat with crew and fans.
In the afternoon, the BBQ was lighted and soon the smell of
grilled sausages came over the airfield. Many pictures were taken and even
the local RC flying club came by to show the drawings for a scaled Bronco
which we hope to see next to the real aircraft in the near future. Around
6PM it was time to fly the Bronco over to our homebase Wevelgem, and so
the fans could enjoy the start-up ground show for the first time. Tony took
off with the Bronco, and made some very welcome fly passes in the most beautiful
light of the day, to conclude the first Bronco Fan Day.
The whole Bronco Demo Team crew would like to thank everyone
for their attendance and the support we received. The season was opened
in a great way, and we hope to see everybody again at one of the events
we will be visiting during the upcoming summer.
