International Air Show
much heralded appearance by the new United States Air Force
stealth fighter, F-22 Raptor, was surprisingly cancelled,
the 2011 edition of Canada’s Airshow, August 12, 13 & 14,
still put up one heck of a full-on-show. The weather was
decent; the ‘Singleton Tower’ guys were in fine form and the
crowds looked great.
program was a superb blend of civilian acts, displays and
military demonstrations with a host of associated ground
activities included. Excitement and thrills for all. And,
plenty of side exhibits, static aircraft, vendors and such,
were open throughout the day – 8:00am-6:00 pm.
