Organizers cancel Gatineau-Ottawa air show this year

There will be no Gatineau-Ottawa air show this year. Vintage Wings of Canada announced the show has been taken off the calendar for 2014.

They say it's a matter of logistics. The organization is hosting a youth summit with former astronaut, Chris Hadfield, on June 30th. That is approximately ten weeks before the scheduled date for the air show.

Spokesperson Carl Martin tells CTV News, it's just too much for the organization to pull off both events because each would require hundreds of volunteers. Martin says the air show will likely be back on the calendar for 2015.

The event drew some 20,000 people last year.
