Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

Well, my eighteenth consecutive Abbotsford Air Show has come and gone. It was probably the most disjointed of my Abby experiences for a few reasons: rain, being the first airshow with my daughter (11 months old), and my mom getting sick on Friday. Abby is usually a family vacation for us. Friday was...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

Had a good time tonight. Traffic was pretty bad getting in. Lots of great food. Tons of great conversation with the crews of the CH-148, KC-135, and F-16s.

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

Totally random question. Did the Granley's have a falling out with the airshow? They used to be a staple, with multiple acts every year. Just popped into my head, not sure if anyone will actually have information regarding this. Not that I really miss the acts, although I enjoyed the Fouga. For all ...
