Speed, flight, excitement, history, adventure, bravery, innovation and skill — all on display in one place for one day only! The Northwest Regional Airshow will take your breath away!
Northwest Regional Airshows’ team is excited to be back in the skies over Terrace and Kitimat after a nearly 20-year absence. In addition to the return of the airshow, the world-famous Canadian Forces Snowbirds will be on deck to inspire and awe. Feel the thrill of flight. See planes from the era of the Barnstormers as they perform breathtaking stunts, experience the history of prop-powered warbirds from the Second World War to jet-powered incarnations.
“We are so excited to be able to host this amazing event for the first time in 20 years and we couldn’t be more proud to be welcoming back the iconic Snowbirds team after nearly two decades,” says Steve Pereira, President, Northwest Regional Airshow Society.
Soak up the atmosphere
No matter how young you are, or young at heart, there’s nothing quite like seeing these amazing fliers and their machines in action. Before the show begins, visitors can get up close and personal with the machines themselves. Get a good look at the planes — from vintage Second World War-era to specially modified stunt planes.
Gates open at 2 p.m. Come early and soak up the atmosphere, enjoy a tasty treat from local food vendors, let the kids blow off steam in the bouncy castle and find a good seat to take in the aerobatics beginning at 5 p.m.
