A plethora of interesting aircraft may be seen in the skies above Cold Lake in the next few days.

As the 2022 Cold Lake Air Show draws near, 4 Wing has stated the traffic one might see buzzing around in the next little while.

“There will be an increase in civilian and military aircraft over the Lakeland Region on July 14, 2022, as performers arrive for the Cold Lake Air Show,” explains 4 Wing Public Affairs Officer Captain Rachel Brosseau.
