Last year, PEI enjoyed the return of an Air Show to Slemon Park, Summerside and although mother nature forced a cancellation on Sundays activities, Saturday surely did not disappoint with several high adrenaline performances of death defying stunts. With the United States Navy Blue Angels headlining the show this year, every aviation fan will want to be in Summerside August 26th. The Air Show Atlantic Insider members already have their tickets and general tickets go on sale this Monday, July 9th at airshowatlantic.ca.
