Abbotsford Airshow 2016 - Abbotsford, BC Canada

I was happy to see the first visit of the F-35 to Canada at our local airshow this year. As well, I reaped the benefits of other manufacturers pushing their goodies as well (it was a Hornet-fest this year).

Security so I dont touch the F-35 :slight_smile:

And more… (excuse the pic quality… new camera the day before and I dont think I have her dialed in yet :wink: )

That F-35 will never be pretty, just like the Tomcat!

She may not be pretty, but she has a great personality :slight_smile:

That looks great - plus beautiful photos @SiThSpAwN. I’m away with work so had to miss it, but apparently as per normal it was another scorching hot day for that airshow - what is it about place that always makes the show an oven every year! :slight_smile:

Yeah, was super hot for sure, we were all coated up real good in sun block, but watched the Snowbirds from the truck in the air conditioning :slight_smile:

I missed that one as well. Quite disappointed though I swear I could hear the F-35 form Victoria…

No guts. No glory. I’m sure you could have gotten away with a pitot tube or “REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT” tag or something. You should have had another Molson.

They did a preemptive strike on that and were handing these out among other things…

They gave you the keys to the jet!!! Well what are you waiting for man…that is clearly an invitation!

(I recommend a 3AM flight…for maximum safety)

They said it was a variant of the F-35… I am unsure…

Put in in Neutral - if it hovers = F-35
