KANSAS CITY, Mo. --
The producers of the Kansas City Aviation Expo announced the 2010 Kansas City Air Show will be canceled.
The Mid-America Youth Aviation Association said scheduling conflicts with the major jet teams like Thunderbirds and Blue Angels will prevent the airshow from featuring such performers, which they say are a huge draw for attendees. The Charles Wheeler Downtown Airport will also be going through scheduled construction on its runway, which will limit the length needed for the larger aircraft featured in the show, organizers said.
"While we're disappointed there will not be an Airshow in Kansas City this year, we have our eyes on 2011 and are already gearing up to make that a great show," said Ed Noyallis, director of the Kansas City Airshow.
