Nova Scotia International Air Show Cancelled

The 1998 Nova Scotia International Air Show has been cancelled out of respect for those who died in the tragic crash of Swissair Flight 111 and for their families and friends.

"We know our sponsors, exhibitors and the thousands of enthusiasts who annually attend this event will concur with our decision," said Fred MacGillivray, chairman of the volunteer-led organization managing the show.

Mr. MacGillivray said the volunteer community group expects the show will return next year.

The Nova Scotia International Air Show, which was to run Sept. 12-13 this year, is planned, managed and operated by a not-for-profit organization.
