All eyes on Abbotsford Airshow

Airshow dazzles crowds with displays, performances and demonstrations

The 51st annual Abbotsford International Airshow takes place Aug. 9-11 at the Abbotsford International Airport.

This year’s event features a salute to the Royal Canadian Air Force which first came to Abbotsford 70 years ago.

Along with the popular static display, the show features flying performances by the Canadian Forces Snowbirds demonstration team, the CF-18 Hornets demo team, the Skyhawks (Canada’s parachute team), civilian performers, aerobatic flying and a crowd-pleasing jet car.

The Abbotsford International Airshow has been rated as one of the top 10 shows worldwide.
