Aerobatic pilots took to the skies once again at the Chilliwack Airport on Sunday.

Aug. 21 marked the return of Chilliwack Flight Fest, the annual free airshow which happened for the first time since 2019.

This year’s performers and aerobatics pilots included Kyle Fowler, Richard Mrazek, Mike Tryggvason, John Mrazek and Ross Granley.

On Saturday, some people took in the Hangar Dance and nighttime airshow.

This year marked the 28th year for the free airshow. Organizers say the free admission is made possible thanks to support from sponsors and the dedication of many volunteers.
