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.

    We are thrilled to be part of the 100th commemoration at Vimy Ridge and the Canada Day celebrations over Parliament hill in 2017.
    The paint job is so Canadian in it’s strength and beauty. It will be an honour to join the hornet in the Canadian skies.
