Only one day after the 49th annual Abbotsford International Airshow came to a close, president Ron Price was preparing for next year.

“It’s going to be a big one, our 50th,” he said Monday morning.

While already thinking ahead for the next show, Price took a few moments to reflect on the weekend event.

He said this year’s show had an outstanding flying program with fan favourites, the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, the SkyHawks and the CF-18 Hornet performances stealing the show.

Price pointed out the most important thing was all the attendees, and the pilots, went home safe.
