Viewing was best just north of Hillsborough Road (road 114) on the south bank of the river, from where the show could be viewed with the sun in the back. Viewing from Main Street (road 126) was recommended by the organization, but this spot proved to be unsuitable for photography. Entrance was free, and most aircraft were operating from Moncton airport, or from their home bases in Eastern Canada. The air show took place between 14.00pm and 16.00pm on both days. Highlight of the show was the water drop by a converted TBM-3 Avenger.
