Edmonton Airshow returns after dozen-year holding pattern
Edmonton last hosted airshow in 2002
A staple of summertime is once again in the skies above the capital region.
After more than a dozen silent years, the Edmonton Airshow roared back to life this weekend, drawing a crowd of nearly 10,000 people to the Villeneuve airport Saturday.
Despite the city's storied aviation history, the city hasn't hosted an airshow since 2002, when the Edmonton International Airport stopped holding the event due to operational concerns.
Organizers were forced to turn away hundreds of vehicles on the opening day after the event sold out. The event runs until Sunday.
