Tickets are now on sale for the Fort St. John International Air show in July.
This year marks the 100th Anniversary of Powered Flight in Canada. To honor the centennial, the restored and painted F-86 Sabre "Hawk One" is expected to make a guest appearance. The Canadian Forces Snowbirds and Skyhawks will also be performing.
In July 2007, more than 8,000 people attended the evening show. Thousands of dollars were donated to local charities and non-profit societies in the North Peace.
This year, all homeschooled students, as well as students in the Christian Life School and Kindergarten to Grade 7 in School District #60, will be receiving a free admission ticket in their year-end report card.
Tickets are 15 dollars each for adults, ten dollars for seniors and students, and free for children with the purchase of an adult ticket. Tickets can be purchased at the Visitor Centre, Petron Communications, Quality Inn Northern Grand, and online at www.fsjairshow.com.
Hundreds of volunteers are needed to put on the 2009 Air Show. To apply as a volunteer, visit www.fsjairshow.com to sign up online or call (250) 787-7100.
The event will be held on Sunday, July 19, 2009 at the North Peace Airport.
