Every year, the Relay's team Sunbeamers has an air show in it's Farshore Field in Sunlight Bay. For the team's history, an event of some kind has been held by the team at the airfield. And officially this is the eighth air show. From 8AM to 4PM SL time, there were a number of things taking place.
As always, there were a number of planes on display. But that wasn't all.
This season, the Sunbeamers were holding the event in cooperation with another team, "Roos With A Dream."
DJ Kayla performed on stage, dancing with other Roos.
The Roos had arrived in their own Chinook helicopter, painted Relay purple.
There was plenty of chatter during this performance. "Think of all the diseases have been wiped out or minimized in our lifetime," one of the Roos, Alison Flow, commented, "Cases due to wild poliovirus have decreased by over 99% since 1988, from an estimated 350,000 cases then, to 33 reported cases in 2018. In 1996, the total life expectancy for a 20-year-old person with HIV was 39 years. In 2011, the total life expectancy bumped up to about 70 years. And more currently, who would have thought that a brand new vaccine for COVID-19 would be going into people's arms as we speak. So, with your help, our dream isn't so far off! Cancer is next!!"
There was also some gaming chatter, notably "World of Warships." One commented, "I never got past teir four with WoWs, destroyers are glass cannons." And talk about Second Life, "Someone always sends me an IM asking me to come to his shows, and every time I respond with 'Sorry, at a RFL event.; Not sure he believes me, but true."
