Nova Scotia International Air Show To Stay In Yarmouth

snowbirds air show

Good news for the town of Yarmouth who hosted their first Nova Scotia International Air Show event last summer after years of the event taking place in Halifax.

The event ran during the September 6-7 weekend and an announcement which could be made this week is expected to confirm the same weekend dates for 2009.

Hopefully the weather will cooperate better this year, but nonetheless this is great news for Yarmouth as it appears the NSIAS has found a new permanent home. Stay tuned for more announcements as bigger and better things are expected for the show in 2009.

    With the Nova Scotia International Air Show coming to Yarmouth in 2009, an effort shoud be made to have the Canso aircraft from the Canadian Wartime Heritage Museum attend. Five different units operated Canso aircraft from the Yarmouth airport during Wold War II. Its appearance would provide a valuable attraction.

    I think this is so ridiculous, Why hold this event in the most southern place in nova scotia! where the fog never seems to lift. I have been going to this event for as long as I can remember and Last year was the first year that i actually missed this event! It is so far out of the way I dont understand why anyone that has the same finical difficulties as I do would go all the way to Yarmouth! I have a suggestion, why not the Debert Airport! Its central to new newbrunswick and capebreaton and would bring much needed business to the area! All the people that I know have the same feeling as I who used to go to this event feel the same as I do!

    Airshow is back at Shearwater for the crowd, the flying display coming in from the Halifax airport, same as it was about 6 or 7 years ago.

    Only reason it went to Yarmouth last year is because they had one of the runways tore up at the Halifax airport, so they couldn't shut down their last remaining runway to commercial aircraft for the day for the exclusive use if the airshow. So for 2009, it was either Yarmouth, or no airshow (they could have gone to Greenwood I suppose).

    It was never intended that the airshow would remain in Yarmouth, and was only a 1yr thing.
