    sussex-Grade-A Productions was the official film company for the Sussex Airshow from 1994-1999. While Grade-A has relinquished the ‘high' profile job to pursue independent films and historical documentaries, an appreciation for the Airshow and its contribution to Sussex County remain. The film company donated a supply of the Air show videos valued at more than $3,000 to the Sussex Airport organizations raising money for the Leo Loudenslagger Memorial and the Experimental Aircraft Owners Association, which provides educational opportunity for local flight enthusiasts. Grade-A also donated Air Show films to a local Boy Scout troup. The donations included a supply of "Airplanes, Yesss!!!" a relaxation video with some of the most impressive aircraft demonstrations from past years at the Sussex Air Show. Rather than a traditional ‘souvenir video' with extensive narration, this video merely shows off the airplanes and their maneuvers with a heavy dose of pleasant music as a background. The airplane video and its companions "Snowfall Serenade" and "A Ride in The Country", has found an enthusiastic audience among long-term care facilities and nursing homes. Care Facilities in Sussex County can get a free copy by contacting Buzz Creek (the new owner of Grade-A Media) on the web at www.buzzcreek.com. The 32nd AnnualAir Show at Sussex is scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 27, 28, and 29. Tickets to this year's show are available at the Sussex Airport.
