    My hopes just got answered yesterday that a fourth show has been planned for this North American 2017 Tour in Gatineau, Quebec for the Wings over Gatineau-Ottawa en vol Airshow. The date has also been changed to April 30th and not June 30th to cope with the aerobatics team schedule for the North American Tour.
