In just over twenty four hours the skies above Terrace will be the backdrop for a spectacular aerial showcase as the Northwest Regional Airshow kicks of with a 5PM start to the festivities.
The first of the events bringing to realization over a year or more of planning by Terrace officials and marking the return of the famed Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds for the first time in over two decades. The squadron sending a shout out to the Northwest today through their twitter feed.
In addition to the famed aerobatics squadron the Canadian Forces SkyHawks will be showcasing their parachute drop skills over the Terrace airport, the team arriving by way of an RCAF Hercules on Monday.
There was no need to alert the community of the arrival of one of the RCAF's largest planes, a fly over the downtown core on Monday providing the "We're here" greeting that residents have been waiting for.
Along with the Snowbirds, Skyhawks and the CF18 Demo squadron, there will be a range of other aerobatic acts and static displays at the Terrace airport as part of the Wednesday afternoon/evening event.
