The Comox Air Show is gearing up to take off this summer, with Aug. 17 confirmed as the big day.

It’s been more than seven years since the past Comox Air Show, which saw about 25,000 people attend, and this year the show is set to coincide with Armed Forces Day, marking 70 years of Air Force history in Comox.

“We intend to present the region with an amazing and memorable Air Show that will also feature displays from across the Canadian Forces,” writes Air Show director Maj. Dwayne Kerr in a promotional pamphlet. “A large variety of unique, historic and modern military and civilian aircraft from across North America will grace the sky and tarmac.”

Organizers at 19 Wing have decided to keep quiet about details until their official media launch in the New Year, but the pamphlet for sponsorship opportunities notes the Canadian Forces Snowbirds Air Demonstration Squadron, Demonstration CF-18 and Skyhawks parachute team will be in attendance.

Tours of static aircraft and displays from the Army and Royal Canadian Navy will also be featured.
