Abbotsford International Airshow
Abbotsford British Columbia Canada
Abbotsford International Airport(YXX)
August 6-8, 2021

Hello all. With the 2020 edition of the Airshow cancelled due to the Coronavirus COVID19 crisis, our airshow will be back next year, and hopefully we get a really great lineup for next year. Performers and Statics will be listed once details become available.

I would suggest putting Royal Canadian Snowbirds and Royal Canadian CF-18 Hornet Demonstration Teams in since they are most likely to attend the air show, but its a suggestion.

I would, but the thing is this year we had the RCAF Snowbirds tragedy, and the CF-18 Demo Team cancelled the season. Yes, you are right, they are always guaranteed to be at our show, but we should wait until December at the ICAS to see what will be happening for next season with this entire crisis still going on sadly 8-) :cry:

Thanks for getting us going for next years airshow. I was initially planning to hold off on making a 2021 thread especially being so far off from the date but I feel the conversation for the time being may be beneficial.

In the meantime, to those that don’t know, in 1970 a time capsule was created on the first day of the show that year. The day it was set to be opened was 50 years from the day it was sealed, which would have been on the first day of this years airshow. I believe plans are still in place for the capsule opening on August 7 and the organizers are also working on a video project which features clips from the past of crowd favourites you don’t see around today.

There's a possibility that the F-22 Raptor Demo Team may get another shot at Abbotsford next year.
We intend to bring the same lineup back for 2021, but cannot confirm all performers yet.

As much as I hope that is the goal, my understanding is that military demos will be the one exception as they will all need to reconfirm. In terms of civilians participation I think we can expect to see most, if not all, in 2021.

To those who purchased tickets for 2020.
If you still have 2020 tickets, they will be honoured in 2021.
