Re: 2021 Abbotsford International Airshow

True enough. Although I don't trust week-out forecasts in BC.

IN 2019 it was supposed to be gorgeous at the beginning of the week and ended up raining almost whole weekend.

Re: 2021 Abbotsford International Airshow

The Super hornet will now perform in all 4 shows, so that is awesome! The more afterburner demos in that golden light the better! Is there any chance that aircraft will stage out of Abbotsford if the borders open up before the show? It may be too close to the show to change anything, but I'm curiou...

Re: 2021 Abbotsford International Airshow

Lets do this! (Hopefully just once) So glad it's happening. Didn't wanna spill the beans until it was formally announced just in case the BC government changed their minds. I guess the bright side of having the F-22 and Cf-18 not flying in the Saturday matinee show that itll be two twilight shows fr...

Re: 2021 Abbotsford International Airshow

Interesting...Just noticed (although i'm probably late to the party) that the AIAS logo for 2021 on the website is "Skydrive", and is the exact same design and font as Airshow London? I wonder if the two shows have entered into an agreement of some kind? Or just blatant copy-pasting from t...

Re: 2021 Abbotsford International Airshow

Very promising, I just hope by the time the government approves the go-ahead it's not too late for everything to come together.

Re: History of single ship demo team in the US

F-16 Demo was at least 1986 if not before. Teams from Luke (and I believe Holloman AFB?) did shows across the western portion of North America. First true Super Hornet demo I saw was in 2001. But not sure if that was an official "team" yet. Also, USMC Harrier demos were extremely common by...

Re: Airshow London 2020 (Now "Sky Drive" Presented by ASL)

One other thing I found kind of randomly interesting was the Thunderbirds #2 and #3 flying two-seaters with belly tanks, just like Abby last year. Maybe that is their Canadian performance profile. And also both had abbreviated shows, albeit for different reasons. Chris I heard one of their single-s...
