Hello all Calgarians, I guess since I know a little something about Aviation days I should tell you about it for this year.
It will be running on June 8-9, from 10 am until 4 or 5 pm. The static display this year will have a lot of corporate jets from the likes of Sunwest, Airsprint, Morgan, and some other private operators. The Canadian Air Force should be bringing in a couple of CF-18's, on of which will hopefully be the special 20th anniversary colors (check out pics of it at www.canadianaviation.com). I was told that they were trying to get some American presence due to them all being up at Cold Lake for the maple flag exercises, so you never know.
Westjet should have a plane there, most likely a -200 series, but there is that off chance of a -700, but very slim. There will also be lots of displays from the General Aviation flying community in the Calgary area, complete with Plane flights courtesy of us great guys at Calgary flight, $20 for the flight, and who knows, I may be your pilot!
Plus the usual displays inside the hangars, and of course lots of food and airport emergency equipment displays. And of course for all those spotters, you are airside at the southeast corner. Right next Runway 34, so if it is active at all, you'll get some great unobstructed shots of the comings and goings.
I'm sure there will be more information the closer we get to it, but that is all the information I have now. Oh yeah, Eagle 'copters will also be doing helicopter flights as well.
And see Bo, I told you AF1 would be arriving...in the aluminium! And the 340-600!!?? I'll be keeping my eye out all week, someone call me at the flight center at 291-9393 if you hear any specific date or time!
