Last I checked, the CF-18 demo doesn't have Gatineau on their schedule. Maybe that will be changed?

I have to agree with Ryan on the CF 18 Demo Team. They have a 2 day show scheduled down south April 29 & 30. We may have to visit Kingston On to see them.

I forgot to mention the CF-18 listed isn't the demo team. Probably a gray Bagotville bird for static I'm assuming.

Anyone knows why the RAF Typhoon is in Canada that day? It would be nice to see him fly!

I'd imagine it'll be one of the jets on deployment to Langley AFB.
"Trilateral Strategic Initiative at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia, where French Rafales fly with British Royal Air Force Eurofighter Typhoons and U.S. Air Force F-22s."

RAF Typhoons are also based at NAS China Lake almost year-round...So could be one of those as well.

For those waiting for the show I just checked the web site for this events performers. You need to hover your curser over each photo to see if it's confirmed or invited etc but so far things are looking very interesting. (says the Typhoon will be there & I think that means "performing").

That is a funky and annoying way to display them! That looks like too lengthy of a list to be all flying aircraft, so I would be surprised but extremely jealous if the Typhoon does end up performing.

It does seem like too many for the time allotted & in fact they have already announced that the Aurora is for static display. That said I have attended a few of their events & they have flown the Yellow Wing Trainers, the Beaver & the Lysander all together making low & slow passes as they do a circuit one after each other. They could also add the other Tiger Moth to that line up. The VW collection of Warbirds could also perform together with each doing a spot light routine one after another to keep things moving.

It was mentioned on the Vintage Wings Facebook page when they first posted the website that there would be more than one Typhoon and they will only be static display.
