Anyone who has attended the air show in Hillsboro and has also visited the McMinnville airport would quickly realize why this seems like a very bad idea.

Major traffic jam and parking issues.

Flip the photo. Quite obviously the planes are flying inverted.

This is a very good idea and would be a huge boon to our economy! We should pull all the stops to make sure this can happen ASAP. We have an excellent location and if a plane crashes it wouldn’t wipe out a dense neighborhood like they have at Orenco.

GRM

Oh, what a relief. If a plane crashes it maybe only wipes out one or two ....houses or human beings. Good Lord ...this show had lots of fatal crashes and deaths since it exists. Not to mention the noises and the pollution. But as you said a huge boon to our economy and is it what counts, isn't it ?

gregtompkins

GRM there have been more fatal car crashes on highway 18 than at the air show.

GRM

Gregtompkins..you are absolutely right. But while car driving is necessary in our daily life with all the sad side effects a risky air show is not.

@Oregon1
Having visited the Hillsboro air show as well as McMinnville airport regularly, this is a very good idea. Why the opposition? It seems like a no brainer for bringing in welcomed commerce to our city.
@GRM "lots of of fatal crashes and deaths"? Please explain.

I would love to see the airshow here!

I wonder how many fatal and serious car crashes happen involving drunk people leaving large winery hooplas ? What about marijuana impairment? I’m sure you won’t hear that concern coming from these progressive California jackasses. I’m wondering when we will have a drunk wine person kill some kid in Yamhelas trail? Bring the air show! We need more economic drivers not just winery this and winery that !
