Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

On a different note, two Snowbirds just completed a few passes here in Vancouver over English Bay. Likely prep for tomorrow night's performance. Edit: 1:25 Full team completed a couple of passes - looking forward to a rare show over the city. Does anyone know if it's a full show or an abbreviated pe...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

They've added pictures of various civilian aircraft that will be on static display; virtually no interest to me, but may be of interest to some.

Other than the expected F-16s. nothing too exciting this week. We'll see if anything else intriguing shows up in the last week or two.

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

We had a really sweet flyby in 2016 featuring the Snowbirds in the lead, followed by the CF-18 demo jet, and then the Breitling Jet Team in the back.. That was very cool to see. Did anyone get a photo of that, it was only one pass? I remember that clearly: I was on Huntingdon Road and would've had ...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

All valid and convincing points. I agree with 101voodoo: here's hoping for fighter week, and then maybe even heavies week? A couple of Super Hornets, and a Raptor or two would look fantastic on the statics list! Also looking forward to seeing the retro Sea King, and definitely the new Cyclone. We ha...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

The only candidates I can think of would be the USN Super Hornet, the F-22 and the F-35 - all of which, I believe, have been ruled out. Where and when have the USN Super Hornet, F-22 and F-35 been ruled out? Thoughts of any other possibilities? Besides those 3, other possibilities could be F-15E an...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

Static updates to be announced almost daily according to the website and from what I’ve been told from the folks at the AIAS. This is great news. That many announcements sounds like abby will get back to a 2012 size show. Hopefully there are a few more heavies and 1 or 2 more fast movers. Really lo...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

I want to point out that until the airshow organizers officially confirm things themselves, any information I have provided at this point should be considered speculation (Even if it was provided to me by a reliable source) Yep, I know! To be honest, tankers aren't the most interesting for me anywa...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

Very cool! I think there's going to be 4 firsts on static for me: MC-130J, HC-144, CH-148, and MQ-9. Don’t forget the Airbus A400M! Very much looking forward to its arrival. I think those are all firsts for me as well - only one I'm not sure of is the MC-130J. Has that particular plane been at Abby...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2018

Remind me, what was rumored and/or cancelled last minute at last years' show? From what I recall, it wasn't the last minute cancellations: it was the big blunder on their website where a number of statics were shown, including the B-1B and at least a couple of heavies if I'm not mistaken, and then ...
