Red Deer Airport’s Props and Pistons Show and Shine next month

Car, motorcycle and airplane lovers should mark their calendars for an event next month.

The Red Deer Airport will host its second annual Props and Pistons Show and Shine on May 26, in support of the Red Deer Food Bank.

Airplanes and other vehicles will be on display, and there will be dozens of food trucks on site during the event.

People will also be able to explore the businesses residing at the airport, including flying schools, fire suppression, general aviation, and civil air search and rescue.

Trophies will be awarded for fan-voted favourites in aviation and vehicle categories.

Parking is free at the Red Deer Airport and admission to the event is a cash or food donation. The event raised more than $4,000 and 2,300 pounds of food last year.

The Red Deer Airport is also gearing up for its annual general meeting on May 9.
