Air show takes excitement to new heights

VIENNA

Sibling rivalry usually conjures up images of arguing and fighting about who’s the cutest, smartest or gets the most parental attention, but brothers Billy and Dave Werth have placed that style of competition on the fast track.

“We named it that when we were sitting around thinking of something for us to do,” said Air Force Maj. Billy Werth of Indianapolis, referring to the name of their fast-paced race between a motorcycle and a plane.

Both brothers’ supercharged performance called Greyout Aerosports (Sibling Rivalry) was an accelerated attraction for many of the tens of thousands of spectators who attended today’s Thunder Over the Valley Air Show at the Youngstown Air Reserve Station.

An estimated 8,300 people came to the show Saturday, despite the on-and-off rain that grounded the Air Force Thunderbirds’ performance. Today’s attendance figure, however, was way up, thanks largely to sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-60s, noted Master Sgt. Bob Barko Jr., the 910th Airlift Wing’s public-affairs office superintendent.
