Indy Transponder 12-JUN-10 1800z

No Air Show today - WTHR
Indianapolis Air Show organizers have canceled the event for Saturday.
Organizers say that heavy rainfall overnight created unsafe conditions in the parking area for the show, and low ceilings created unsafe conditions for the aerial performers.
Patrons who purchased tickets for today's air show at Mt. Comfort Airport will be able to use those tickets Sunday.
"We sincerely regret that the Indianapolis Air Show had to be canceled for today," said Bob Duncan, chairperson of this year's charitable event. "But it was a matter of safety on the ground and in the air. Water is currently running through our parking areas like rivers.
"We will work hard all day today to ensure that everything is ready to go for Sunday, and we look forward to wowing big crowds with high-flying performances, exhibits, food and plenty of fun," Duncan said.
The air show team is currently reviewing the parking situation at Mt. Comfort and will provide details later today about alternative parking options for tomorrow.
