The Canadian Forces Snowbirds and the SkyHawks — the Canadian Armed Forces parachute team — are among the lead attractions of the Peterborough Air Show this September.
Tickets are now on sale for the Sept. 21-22 event, which is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Peterborough Airport.
Other aerial demonstrations will include Rick Volker, Todd Farrell, MKT Aerobatics and the Great War Flying Museum. There will also be aircraft displays, food vendors and kids’ activities throughout the weekend.
“We are thrilled with the lineup of performances we have assembled to celebrate the airport’s 50th anniversary,” said airport general manager Trent Gervais. “There really is something for everyone, from heart-stopping excitement to graceful manoeuvres and everything in between.”
