The annual event in Chilliwack is one of the only free air shows left in North America

The sky above Chilliwack Airport was filled with history and aerobatics as Flight Fest soared through the air on Sunday.

The 27th annual event in Chilliwack is one of the only free air shows left in North America, and people flocked to see the in-air performances and static displays.

One aircraft on the tarmac that people got to walk inside of was the CH-148 Cyclone, a state-of-the-art, ship-borne maritime helicopter which provides air support to the Royal Canadian Navy.

The air show featured planes from the Museum of Flight, in-air performances by Bud and Ross Granley, John Mrazek, Geoff Latter, and more.
