An exciting airshow once again came to Estevan over the weekend.
The headlining performer was Moose Jaw's Brent Handy, who was making his second appearance in the Energy City, the first being when he open for the Snowbirds in 2016 in Estevan. He noted that the number of airshows in the province is growing.
"In the last 4 years or so, we've really seen a rebirth of the airshow movement in Saskatchewan. It's really cool. We had the show here last year, Carlyle, we had one in Moose Jaw this year, and a lot of other little airshows at municipal airports."
"There's definately an appetite for them and for aviation, so that's really neat."
Handy got his start as an Air Cadet, and worked his way through the Air Force to the Snowbirds, where he is now their standards pilot. He provides his own aerobatic performances on the side. He also has a personal connection to the Energy City, as his brother-in-law played for the Estevan Bruins several years ago.
