The Edmonton Airshow takes place every August at The Villeneuve Airport, north west of Edmonton, about 20 km (66 ft) west of St. Albert. There, you can watch pilots do loops, spins, dives, and stalls. Their maneuvers will give you the chills! Monster trucks, dogfighting planes, and bombers can be seen in the skies of Villeneuve. Visitors can also observe dogfights between two Russian MiGs and an FJ-4 Fury, and a T-33 fighter jet. CC-130J Hercules releases 40 paratroopers from the 3rd Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. Some 20,000 people are drawn in by the exciting Edmonton Airshow every time it takes place.
