Air Show Atlantic announces show in Debert, Nova Scotia for first time

Air Show Atlantic will be held in Debert, Nova Scotia at the Debert Flight Centre, August 29 and 30, 2020. This marks the first time the air show has produced "Air Show Atlantic" in Debert. In June of 2019 producers welcomed the Canadian Forces Snowbirds for a Wednesday afternoon display which proved the site viable for its major air show production.

"With over 4000 fans attending a mid week show in the afternoon it was clear that Debert, Truro and the communities of Colchester County were ideal for hosting Air Show Atlantic", says Colin Stephenson, Executive Director of Air Show Atlantic.

"We're proud of our Debert Airport and are thrilled to welcome back the Snowbirds, this time along with the full Atlantic Canada International Air Show. It's very exciting!", said Mayor Christine Blair of Nova Scotia's Colchester County.

"The Town of Truro is happy to support the Atlantic International Air Show in August 2020 and the great work of Events Truro Colchester, who will be hosting the event locally," said Truro's Mayor Bill Mills.

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds will once again perform in Debert but they will be joined by a themed line-up of historic "warbirds" spanning from World War I all the way through the Korean and Cold War eras to our modern CF-18 Demonstration. Those acts include: a P-51D Mustang and FG-1D Corsair, a World War One era Nieuport XI biplane, and a de Havilland Vampire, Canada's first fighter jet. This collection of "warbirds" will showcase a unique aviation spectacle not often seen due to the limited number of aircraft from these eras still flying today.

A highlight for many will be the celebration of the 80th anniversary of The Battle of Britain as we display a World War Two era Supermarine Spitfire Mk IX from the Collings Foundation in Massachusetts, USA.

General admission tickets to this year's show go on sale Tuesday, December 10, with premium ticket options to follow in the spring.
