Plane to See:
Abbotsford International Airshow back in 2021 as drive-in event.
Organizers of a popular British Columbia airshow are adapting this year’s event so it falls within the boundaries of provincial health measures but also permits fans to attend the display of aviation talent.
It’ll be called 'SkyDrive', turning the show into a drive-in affair where attendees can enjoy the airborne feats of aerobatics from the comfort of their own 20′ x 20′ parking space on the airfield.
The three-day event will be held at the Abbotsford International Airport and runs from Friday, August 6 to Sunday, August 8, 2021.
Tickets are priced between $99.00 and $199.00 per ‘carload’ of people (just like the ’50's movies!)
Air British Virgin Islands Interline Regatta.
The 2020 Interline Regatta unfortunately had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
For 38 years, The Moorings Interline Regatta has kicked-off sailing season in the BVI with exciting races, thrilling parties and endless fun on the water.
Originally established for members and friends of the airline industry, this annual event has grown into an international celebration attracting boaters and spectators of all types and skill levels.
The next Interline Regatta will be held October 12 - 21, 2021.
