Site Supervisor, Brad Shaw, of the Penticton Regional Airport was on shift during the 2017 Peachfest and managed to take a few snapshots of the Snowbirds and Skyhawks on August 9, 2017. Despite the smoke-filled sky, the RCAF put on a fantastic Airshow!
In addition to our 24/7 presence at the airport year-round, our Commissionaires worked on-site as extra security for the planes while they were on the ground.
Pictured above is Commissionaire David Kerr, who was invited a day before the event to jump tandem with the Skyhawks, and who was also part of the committee that helped organize this event. Dave, being a Major with the Air Cadets, was on site the morning of August 9th with 120 of his Air Cadets for a tour.
Thanks to all the Commissionaires at this site that worked 24-hour coverage. A job well done!
