WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The planning committee for the "Thunder in the Valley" air show says it would like to make it a bi-annual event.

The planning committee is recommending to take a year off before hosting the air show again in 2013.

The Waterloo Kiwanis Club board of directors plans to discuss the issue and make a final decision Monday. 

Organizers said about 53,000 people attended the air show at the Waterloo Regional Airport in August.

While the show brought in around $22,000, committee members say due to the time and effort to put on a top notch air show, it may be best to only hold "Thunder in the Valley" every two years.
