2023 RCAF CF-18 Hornet Demonstration Team Schedule

Post by RyanS » Tue Dec 13, 2022 9:57 pm

Here is the 2023 airshow schedule for the Royal Canadian Air Force CF-18 Hornet Demonstration Team!

The CF-18 schedule is a little different this year, first being limited to just 10 shows overall and then being further split into “tactical support” demonstrations a traditional aerobatic demonstrations. “Modem” will return as the team’s pilot, but there will be no special paint scheme this season. From the CF-18 Demo Team’s post:
2023 CF-18 demonstrations will consist of a mix of two separate types of shows: a tactical fighter support demonstration highlighting the CF-18’s ability to provide support to soldiers on combat operations and an aerobatic demonstration showcasing the CF-18’s wide range of capabilities. Both demonstrations will be flown with aircraft in an operational grey paint scheme.

The announcer did a great job of working the song titles into his narration at Abbotsford.
