Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

Hoping since Saab has offered the Royal Canadian Air Force eighty eight (88!) Gripen E fighters, Saab could please bring a Gripen to Abbotsford! More details from FlightGlobal : The RCAF issued a draft request for proposal in October 2018 to an exclusive set of five potential suppliers to replace it...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

I don't know if I should say anything or say anything here, but it would sure be nice if the BCTransit shuttle to the airshow started at least a half hour before the gates opened. The shuttle normally runs a bit late, and by the time we get to the booths they're sold out :-( . Thanks. Unforunately ...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

I love all the statics. Is this all the US will be sending, since the American week is over? Having 2 tankers back is really nice. All-American week was just a way to thematically group the first static announcements. You can expect more US announcements in the weeks to come. Good to hear. VAQ-133 ...

Re: Abbotsford International Airshow 2019

I hope so too for more US stuff. Like I dunno... if I may be a bit selfish maybe an EA-18G Growler from VAQ-133 Wizards - I know two of the aircrew, "Miss Lippy" and "Papa Roach" would be so happy to use the afterburner on departure day knowing the cheering of joy would go up all...

This American also wants a lot of Canadian kit on display. Preferably Harvard IIs and Hawks.

Re: 2019 Oregon International Airshoow

Just received some bad news, the airshow will be moving to McMinnville Airport this year due to runway construction at Hillsboro. While this might be fine for the casual viewer, MMV's runway is quite a bit shorter than HIO so that'll probably eliminate military statics and also MMV is not good for ...

That would be much appreciated, especially if we could please get a Eurofighter flying demo ;-).
