2013 Iqaluit Air Show Print

There was a big turnout for the static displays, and the fly-by of Royal Canadian Air Force Aurora and CF-18 aircraft.

Here in the Eastern Arctic, air travel is the way everyone gets everywhere.  There are no roads between communities, or to the south.  So we all rely heavily on the aviation industry for things like transportation, shipping, medical emergency travel, search and rescue, and exploration.  That translates into lots of interest in planes and flying.  We were lucky enough to participate in the the first Iqaluit Air Show in 2009, when we owned a Cessna 172 here.  It was was fun then, and fun now.
