Braack tapped to lead Hillsboro air show

Promoter of Washington state show will succeed Judy Willey

The Oregon International Air Show has named Bill Braack to take over as president after Judy Willey’s nearly 20-year tenure with the air show.

Braack served as director of operations for the last three air shows, and officially began as president Nov. 8.

An air show promoter with the Three Rivers Air Show in southwest Washington in the early 1990s, Braack became part of the Smoke-N-Thunder Jet Car Crew in 1996 and purchased the business from Scott and Linda Hammack in 2005.

The 2015 air show will take place at Hillsboro Airport July 17-19 and will feature the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. Additional information about the 2015 event is available at oregonairshow.com.
