The Vectren Shrinersfest made a huge announcement for Midwestern airshow fans this morning; the Canadian Forces Snowbirds will now be appearing in addition to the previously scheduled Blue Angels. Shrinersfest will take the place of the Waterloo Airshow, which canceled earlier this month, on the Snowbirds’ schedule. Shrinersfest faced some challenges itself this year; in October organizers announced that the airshow portion of the event was canceled in 2015 and beyond, but just a week later reversed course after Vectren Corporation stepped in to sponsor the show for this year. The future of the airshow remains in doubt, so the two jet team extravaganza is likely the make or break point. The CF-18 Hornet demo team, which also has an open weekend following the Waterloo cancelation, was not announced as an addition to Shrinersfest and may yet be added to another show’s lineup.
