Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

Well, our big hope is obviously for a visit from the touring Red Arrows. Hopefully not just wishful thinking, but three teams would certainly make up for the lack of an acc demo!!

Re: RAF Red Arrows announce 2019 North American Tour

I was very excited to read this, but now must hope the suggestions of a mid-August start on the east coast turn out to be wrong. Would really love to see the Red Arrows perform in Abbotsford. They are definitely the most noteworthy team that I've not seen perform since Abby '86 allowed me to see Pat...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

Reflections on the Friday show: Entering: call it good fortune/good timing/planning, but we had little to no problems with entering the show, even in time to see some of the statics. I would still recommend a 2 pm gates to provide more time to wander the statics, talk to the ever-friendly and welcom...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

It was a Blue Angel Okay, that makes sense. Too bad the whole team didn't do an English Bay/Kits flyby. That would've been cool. I knew they would do a flyby of the city but I thought it would've been the whole team. I'm wondering now if it was a media flight - a lucky journalist getting to go for ...

Downtown Van/PNE just got a flyover - didn't get a good look, but my guess is the CF-18 demo?

If so, should be landing in Abby right about now.

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

Thanks for the updates - gotta admit, it does a bit of the excitement out of arrivals Thursday if they all show up early. Of course, we know the Blues are practising on Thursday, and the CF-18 demo usually practices early evening. Hopefully, the A-10 decides to do a practice run. If "half the static...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

Just following up, the show has told me they are working on finding a replacement squadron, fingers crossed. This is too bad, when the NORAD formation loses one of the three fighters, the excitement factor drops by several magnitudes. Not too mention the two Eagles on the static ramp. Wishing for t...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

From Facebook: the app foreshadowed USN Super Hornets for static display are confirmed. Would anyone happen to know where from? what squadron? not familiar with what you guys usually see out west. I want to say they've come from NAS Lemoore (California) before (thinking VFA-151 Vigilantes might've ...
