The Southwest Flying Club and Swift Current Airport are celebrating the centennial by welcoming the Century Flight Club.
The club features 100 aircraft flying from Eastern Canada to Nanaimo, B.C. and they’ll be stopping at the airport to join in the festivities, which include historical walking tours, plane rides, and an airshow by Dave Mathieson to be held at 4:30 and 5:45 p.m.
“He’s top notch,” Southwest Flying Club President Scott Carefoot said of Mathieson. “He’ll dazzle. It’s amazing how it looks like he’s out of control and he just saves it and does another loop right away. It’s something. He’ll have a good show.”
The festivities conclude later tonight with a dinner at 6:00 p.m. at the airport. Tickets are $25 at the door.
