Air show hiatus

The Boundary Bay Air Show is doing a flyby for 2011.

Organizers and municipal officials announced last December the event will not be held this year.

The free event, which draws roughly 7,000 spectators to watch aerobatic and ground-based displays each June, is scheduled to return in 2012.

The reason for the break is due to the 80 St. overpass and road construction along 72 St. and Ladner Trunk Rd.

The work limits access to Boundary Bay Airport and raises concerns over public safety.
