Quesnel's Fraser River GM donates vehicle for pilot

Fraser River GM provides transportation for fly-in pilot.

Canada Day was not only busy on the ground but, thanks to pilot and aerobatic expert Ron Andrew of Blender Airshows the skies were also worth watching.

Andrew, who is performing at this year’s Skyfest, Aug. 4 – 5, offered aerobatic rides, which were auctioned off at Skyfest’s fundraising pub nights and two of those lucky bidders received their once-in-a-lifetime rides on Saturday, June 30. On Sunday, Andrew flew over Canada Day celebrations in LeBourdais Park. With smoke-on he spiraled from 3,200 feet down to 1,500 feet above the crowd, then flew a figure 8. Many oohs and aahs were heard from the crowd at the park. While in Quesnel, Andrew, right, was graciously supplied with a vehicle from Fraser River GM, courtesy of Shane Thon, left. Also, a room was provided at the Sandman Inn and meals at Dennys and Sharks Club. Volunteers are still welcome and one lucky volunteer will win an aerobatic ride. Tickets are on sale online and at Circle ‘S’ Western Wear and Quesnel Tourist Centre.
