It might be wise to get there early should this be the case. Of course, times are subject to change.
This confirmed?

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

It is a show for kids and their families sponsored by Ronald Mcdonald House, so that is why they don't sell tickets for that. Your best bet is to stick around late on the Thursday evening. Last year, the A-10, CF-18, Rob Holland, and a few others went up. I hope someone with a really nice camera ca...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

Now I learned this from comments on the Abby Airshow Facebook page so you should trust but verify: Blair Thandi: Joe A Kunzler Not a show, Thursday would be arrivals. There is a mini airshow from 5-8PM on that day as well. The CF-18 goes up as the sun is setting, and it looks amazing. I just wish th...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

I've been on Huntingdon for the last 15 years, I've never really given King a chance because I like seeing what's going on and even taking taxing pictures. Can you compare the two? How often do crews stay low all the way to King? Well I can’t say one is better than the other. It all really comes do...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

For departure day, I have seen things start to leave around 7:30. Everything would usually be done either around noon or 1. I am expecting a lot of people to be out there this year with all the radical stuff we have static wise, plus performers. Hoping for good flybys, we miss them. I am most excit...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

Taken from the Legacy Flight thread. VFA-122 has been doing a dual Super Hornet Legacy program at all their shows thus far. Hopefully this holds true for Abbotsford. VFA-122 have also not been using their jets so far this season. They used Stinger jets at Gig Harbor so here's hoping those come to a...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

F-5N Aggressors confirmed for static! I believe the last time we had aggressor F-5s at Abbotsford was in 2010. Great announcement. https://www.facebook.com/360068150851/posts/10156564497630852?s=762880720&substory_index=0&sfns=xmwa This is really shaping up to be a great lineup, lots of col...
