There’s been lots of anticipation-building promotion for the Great Lakes International Airshow over the past several weeks. Thursday, the roar of the first arriving planes overhead, brought a growing sense of excitement which will reach sky-high levels throughout Saturday and Sunday June 18th & 19th at the St. Thomas Municipal Airport. It’s shaping up to be another great show – the last one hosted in St. Thomas was voted ‘Best Airshow in Canada’ by Airshows Review Magazine in 2013.
Many of the thrills, of course, will come from high-tech entertainment – the sights and sound of fast, finely crafted flying machines flown by highly skilled pilots. However, it may be their combination with some of the show’s more low-tech, small-scale features which will help make it the ‘Best’ of 2016.
