From the other side of the barriers, you will be able to see the live "operations" of the Show take place as the performers taxi-out and then return to the area after landing from their respective performances. This is the place to be if you have an interest in seeing the "inner workings" of our Air Operations.

The living history encampment by the Atlantic Canadian Military History Association preserves and honors the memory of the people who lived through the epic struggles of the Great War, World War 2 and Korea, by educating the public about the many contributions of Canadians. They authentically portray the soldiers, sailors, air force personnel, as well as the civilians of all nations of the time.

JOHN S. HART
SPITFIRE MODEL

STATUS: CONFIRMED

The John S. Hart 3/4-scale model of the Supermarine Spitfire Mk I is Air Show Atlantic's community and awareness ambassador. The model, first built for the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo in 1990 has a long, storied history and is named in honour of the ONLY Atlantic Canadian to fly a Spitfire during the historic "Battle of Britain". He was also the last surviving Canadian pilot who flew in the battle, just passing away in 2019 at the age of 102. We invite you to come visit the model and learn about its history and that of John S. Hart.

Several members of the 501st Atlantic Garrison can be found "patrolling" the Air Show grounds throughout the day, meeting and entertaining the public and Star Wars fans of all ages (including many of our flight crews and pertformers over the years!).
