The memory of the former public affairs officer with the Snowbirds will be forever attached to Air Show Atlantic.

The media centre for the annual event is now named Halifax native Jenn Casey. She was killed in a crash involving the Snowbirds in Kamloops 2020.

Casey spent time working in media in Halifax and was a graduate of King’s College. Air Show Atlantic Executive Director Colin Stephenson was emotional during the dedication ceremony and explains they change locations often form year to year, but this will be a constant.

“The one thing that is going to stay the same from here on forward, for all of our shows, is that this will be known as the Captain Jenn Casey Media & Photographer Centre,” Stephenson said. “This sign, or a version like it, will be from all of our shows from now on, supporting the legacy that she helped forge as a member of a team.”

This latest edition of the air show was held in Debert. It served as the ninth location that they have produced the show in 15 different years.

The Snowbirds were not part of this weekends air show after another crash in B.C earlier this month.

The team was placed on an operational pause by the Royal Canadian Air Force to inspect the jets.
