BOSCOBEL, St Mary: TOURISM WAS boosted in St Mary earlier this week as the Boscobel Jamaica Air Show took off in fine style.

The two-day event saw scores of onlookers and aeronautic enthusiasts turning out to witness aeronautic displays.

"I am glad to be in Jamaica and I don't wanna go home. Lovely weather and lovely people, and I love James Bond Beach," said tourist Garey Ward.

Captain Errol Stewart, chairman of the Boscobel Jamaica Air Show and chief executive officer of the Caribbean Aviation Training Centre, was elated by the support he received from residents, spectators, and sponsors, who made the inaugural event a successful one.

"I am glad to see the kids and parents and grandparents coming out. This is just a taste of what will happen on Sunday, and in years to come. It is a family thing and career path for the youngsters as we, the older generation, are a dying breed, and I really want to see more and more youngsters get involved," a pleased Stewart remarked.
