CNE Air Show

It's been many years since I've been, but it used to be a mix of military fast jets, tactical aircraft, SAR, civilian aerobatic, historic, etc. with often international participants other than the US. It seems lately the CAF limits it's participation to the dedicated air show teams (Snowbirds, Skyhawks, CF-18 demo flight) and perhaps the odd rotary unless the air show is at a home base of something else. International participation has a huge cost - I think the CNE was lucky to get the RAF team as part of their NA tour. The cost to get historic aircraft has likely become prohibitive and there are many other air shows around NA that can impact scheduling. The Atlantic air show at CFB Greenwood was on the same weekend.
