AIRBUS gained a deserved point in a 2-2 draw at Llandudno and, with better fortune, could have added further goals for the win they really needed in the battle to avoid the drop.
The Wingmakers made a bright start, going close in the first minute when Reece Deakin hit the near post, before some good work the left by Ryan J Edwards ended with a cross that was headed home by Deakin to claim his first goal for the club.
But the lead lasted only six minutes and failure to defend at set pieces again proved costly for Andy Thomas's men. A Robbie Parry corner from the left was headed past Ryan Neild by Danny Shaw and another Parry flag kick, just after the break, ended with Marc Williams handing the home side the lead with another header.
Airbus survived a good spell from Llandudno to hit back in the 74th minute as Tony Gray did well to control the ball after an Ashley Williams shot had been blocked, before firing beyond keeper Dave Roberts. And, in the time remaining, Lee Owens headed into the roof of the net and sub Liam O'Neill could have claimed a winner, but was thwarted by Roberts.
With Aberystwyth gaining a draw to retain a seven-point safety margin, relegation looks a certainty, but at least Airbus are not going surrendering their Welsh Premier status without a fight.
