Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2020

Hardly surpringly. Still sucks. Does anyone know the dates for the 2021 show? Aug. 1 is on a Sunday so I'm not sure if that counts as the first weekend or not. My fingers are crossed for a couple of things I've heard of in the works for this year. No teasers/info though, especially this early. I'm s...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2020

According to the airshow insider email, the US Navy Tailhook Legacy Flight will be with a EA-18G Growler from VAQ-129 "Vikings". RAD!!! :D :D :D

Now let's hope they also bring one for static as the Growler has yet to appear at Abby despite being based next door.

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.

Static hit with some cancellations in the F-15, F-5, T-38, and CC-115. But all the heavy iron arrived.
