Looking Back at Canada’s Shearwater International Air Shows Part 1


The last Shearwater International Air Show was held in 1997, more than two decades ago. Later shows at the military base, located a short distance northeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia, continued under different names and organizations after the base was downsized.


We ran a feature here in these pages in 2013; new photos have been added here for a fresh look at many aircraft and squadrons that have been retired since the much-heralded air shows of the 1980s and 1990s. Gone are the CT-133 Silver Stars, Ch-124 Sea Kings, and most of the other types contained in this report. The photos here are Canadian Forces aircraft that have been retired, withdrawn, or replaced with other airframes.


You can hover over the thumbnail pictures for identification or click for an enlarged photo. Enjoy!
