The Lake Powell Air Affaire was one of the most dramatic air shows I’d ever experienced. The combination of dramatic landscape, highly skilled pilots and advanced aircraft made for an awe-inspiring sensory feast! That is, until the events of September 11, 2001. The show was shelved until 2010 when it returned as Lake Powell Wings & Wheels.
According to the Lake Powell Chronicle this year’s event will be on October 13 (2012):

Get a view of Page you’ve never seen before.
