2017 website and information has been updated. An interesting note; under the performer and static listings they have a "Canadian", 'United States" and "International" sections for each. The show's theme is celebrating Canada's 150th birthday, so it looks like the organziers might be going the extra mile for the 2017 event.

Also with regards to those who had purchased tickets to 2016's Saturday show, which was cancelled, due to weather:
If you held tickets for AIRSHOW LONDON Saturday, Sept 17th and were not able to attend on Sunday, Sept 18th. HOLD ON TO YOUR TICKETS.

You will be able to exchange your unused tickets for 2017 dates. Details and instructions on HOW to EXCHANGE – will be posted on line when tickets sales begin for 2017.The exchange option applies to ALL unused 2016 tickets – both single and two-day pass tickets.

Two-day pass holders will be able to exchange their Saturday portion for either a single day in 2017 OR use it as half value for a two-day pass in 2017.
Can't wait to see what they have in store for this year!

I've been in contact with some of the organizers for Airshow London 2017 and all I can say is this show is said to be "presumed" to be having the best lineup in Canada. Based on what I've seen on their website, I wouldn't doubt that all.

Also confirmed for Airshow London 2017

-Pete McLeod Edge 540 Aerobatics

Cheers,

In many aspects. In the air and on the ground, this year's lineup will be among the best lineups assembled (Canada & otherwise). It's going to be a real exciting year.

This could be a good show! Looking forward to seeing if any vintage jets like the Hawk One Sabre and Mako T-33 will be on the schedule.

Excellent addition! I've seen Paul Wood fly this baby a couple of times at Oshkosh. Great airplane. I'm curious to see if this is the first time they have been outside the United States with this A-4.

I saw on Facebook from airshowinfo.hu a news that the F-16 Solo Turk would be present at the London airshow. Does anyone have more info or a confirmation?
