Flying demos will be done by John Mrazek, Ron Andrew’s and local pilot Glenn Pearce.

Peet Vahi of the Vanderhoof Airport has compiled and facilitated an event that will surely have Air Show’s reacquiring in the town of Vanderhoof.

The events on August 11 will commence at 1 p.m. with flying demos and musical guests.

Bryant Olender and musical group, BANG! will be entertaining guests during the dinner and dance portion of the event.

The three hour Air Show event will be the opportunity to see if the community of Vanderhoof is receptive to getting back to its traditional ways.
