Air Show Furore Hits Rasesa

| May 15, 2015

Rasesa will be buzzing with aircraft engine sounds as the fourth edition of the Wesbank International Air Show kicks into gear on Saturday (May 16).

Organised by Matsieng Trust, the Wesbank Botswana International Air Show, which was previously known as the Matsieng Air Show is expected to attract multitudes of aviation enthusiasts in anticipation of the family fun day marked by aerobatic air flips and stunts.

According to a press statement from organisers, in 2014 the show attracted participants and spectators from as far as Zimbabwe, South Africa and Namibia.

“In partnership with Wesbank Botswana, a division of First National Bank (FNB) Botswana, Matsieng Trust uses the platform to raise funds for charitable organizations, whilst bringing together the community for a fun filled family day,” reads the statement.

FNNB Director of Marketing and Communications Bomolemo Selaledi indicated that they are honored yet again to be working with Matsieng Trust and to be part of the event which highlights Botswana on the international scene.

She indicated that the previous editions of the air show were a phenomenal success and FNNB is looking forward to bringing attendees an even more impressive experience this year. “I encourage all to come out and show your support,” she said.

The statement stated that the highlight of 2014 show included para-gliders, aerobatics, triple inverted parachute drop, exhibition of aircrafts and motors.

“This is not only an opportunity for us to showcase Wesbank’s offerings as a leading financier for vehicle and assets including aircrafts, passenger and commercial vehicles, plant and machinery, agriculture equipment, boats, motorbikes and earth moving equipment,” she said.

Beneficiaries of funds raised during last year’s air show were Motswedi Rehabilitation Centre, Sir Ketumile Masire Foundation and Lady Khama Trust.

The event is said to kick off at 8am and tickets are available at Pharma Lulu (Mowana Shopping Centre, Westgate mall), Spar (Riverwalk, Airport Junction, Kgale) and also at the venue on the day of the event. Tickets are going for P80 adults and P50 for children (below 17).
