Alberta International Air Show Prepares For Its 20th Anniversary
Lethbridge: The pilot who left many people shaken at the beginning of last year's air
show in Lethbridge is scheduled to return this July. However, it's expected he
won't have to hit the ejection button this year.
Captain Brian Bewes, who piloted the ill-fated CF-18 that crashed during a
practice run before the Air Show officially got underway, will be
bringing a Harvard-2 this year. Bewes was restored to flight status a month
This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Lethbridge International Air
Show and organizers are assembling a great line-up of performers.
President Brent Botfield says the CF-18 demo is returning, as well the
Snowbirds, and a group from Illinois called Lima-Lima, which is a six-aircraft
aerobatic team. There will also be an L-39 jet called Fire-Cat -- a
Czechoslovakian training jet that flies along with pyrotechnics.
The Airshow runs July 23rd and 24th and organizers are already looking for volunteers. You can check out their website for information at www.albertaairshow.ca
