Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

For those who are interested, the tentative time scheduled for the Thunderbirds practice on Friday is 10AM - 11AM. It might be wise to get there early should this be the case. Of course, times are subject to change. This confirmed? Yes, per road closure information posted on the web site. Keep in m...

Re: Patrouille Suisse Flies Over Wrong Event

I can confirm that this did indeed happen. We could see it all unfold, in the distance, from the show. Was surprised they made there way around to do the flypast at Fairchild after the "missed approach". Apparently a B 52 flew over Spokan International airport before he realized his mistake and then...

Re: 2019 Airshow topics?

I had a similar reaction. My thought is that at this point, most of the shows being added will never be viewed again since, if there was interest, a thread would already have been created. However, I think the effort is valid, and if it can be done early in, or before, the airshow season started it ...

Re: 2019 Oregon International Airshow

It has been confirmed on their Facebook page, though only in a brief response to someone who posted about the change there. It does seem they are a little slow at announcing it publicly. Wait, if the airshow was moving this year, wouldn't it be announced on their social media platforms? I did some r...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

I would like to think not having the blues this year , possibly could mean getting back our resident us navy super hornet demo back. Sorry, got bad news for you there too. Rumour has it there will be little to no Rhino demos in 2019. ** The organizers will have to get creative to get more burners i...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

Unless my eyesite is failing me , this looks to be one of the first times that I can remember , in which we didnt receive an acc demo. Disappointing . Most likely because we have the Thunderbirds. These days it is becoming more rare to have both, and unheard of north of the border since Sequestrati...
