Christmas came early for Abbotsford Fans this year! Here's a video of the Raptor to get the hype going early! Can't wait to see it fly over Abby skies this summer! Merry Christmas everyone!

In addition to performing a full demo, the F-22 will also take part in a Heritage Flight. Participating warbird for the Heritage Flight to be determined.

Perfect. The new Heritage profile includes 5 or 6 passes, which means more Raptor air-time 8-)

If anyone has any burning questions they want to ask us about how we organize the show, other behind-the-scenes stuff, or whether we consider hot dogs to be sandwiches, we'll do our best to answer them.

I’m excited to see what the Legacy Flight has to offer this year. From the looks of it, it doesn’t seem that Abbotsford will have a Super Hornet TAC demo this year.

In other news, Jodi Rueger will now be flying a Pitts S1 in the show.
