Air Force Beach will have limited access to non-pass holders for the Victoria Day long weekend.
19 Wing Comox is asking visitors and residents of the Comox Valley to avoid using the beach to watch the Canadian Forces Snowbirds’ training sessions.
The base says this past weekend resulted in an overcrowded parking lot, disregard for speed limits, illegal use of vacant camping spots at AirForce Beach Campground, and general non-adherence to provincial restrictions against gatherings.
19 Wing says once Air Force Beach is at capacity, for the safety of the public, people and cars will be turned away.
Those wishing to watch the Snowbirds are asked to find another location to watch.
