USA Today’s 10 Best Reader’s Choice Award Contest has picked last fall’s groundbreaking Airshow London Skydrive airshow as the best air show in North America for 2020. With the COVID-19 pandemic closing virtually every major public event in the world, the innovative minds at Airshow London devised a way to get aviation fans the action they craved while keeping them safe and healthy. A total of 5,000 vehicles with 20,000 fans watched the a variety both sides of the border in a unique example of international cooperation and grass roots determination.
“We are extremely proud to have been voted the best air show in North America this year. Being the only Canadian show nominated was already an awesome compliment but to win, wow, we are so thankful,” said Holly Doty, Airshow London Executive Director. “Our team of staff and volunteers dedicate so much of their time and energy to put on an incredible event for our guests.” This year’s show will repeat the drive-in format and feature the Snowbirds, CF-18 and the only Canadian appearance of the Blue Angels. The show is Aug. 27-29.
