The special paint scheme for the 2017 CF-18 Hornet demonstration aircraft has been unveiled! The scheme was presented today at the ICAS convention in Las Vegas. The stunning design celebrates the Canada’s 150th anniversary with the national colors, red and white, and several versions of the famed maple leaf symbol. The unveiling follows the announcement of the 2017 CF-18 airshow schedule yesterday.
Each year, the dedicated demonstration aircraft gets a special paint scheme for the airshow season. The 2016 aircraft was painted black and yellow in honor of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, and in 2015 the aircraft was painted in camouflage to commemorate the Battle of Britain in World War II.
