After missing last year because of COVID, the Wings Over Springbank Airshow is ready to take flight west of Calgary once again.

The biennial event was cancelled last year due to COVID but they are excited to get back at it from July 23 to 24.

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds’ will take to the sky with their legendary formation flying, as well as the Northern Stars led by airshow legend, Brent Handy. The F18 Demo Team will showcase Canada’s leading multi-mission fighter jet in its operational grey colour palette in recognition of their 2022 theme, “Fighter Operations at Home and Abroad.”
