The Snowbirds are an Abbotsford Airshow crowd favourite and will be returning again for this year’s show.

A diverse Abbotsford Airshow The 49th annual event will feature everything from warbirds to a jet-powered school bus

P

repare your eyes and ears for amazement as the 49th annual Abbotsford International Airshow lands at the Abbotsford Airport this weekend. As always, the entertainment will thrill families and aviation enthusiasts alike. A number of well-known planes will be returning to the skies, as will popular static displays and demonstrations. Special this year, the Canadian Forces SkyHawks will be celebrating its 40th anniversary, and the Supermarine Spitfire will be celebrating its 75th anniversary. In the air As the show gears up for its 49th year, the air performances will follow the same routine as in the past, featuring military planes, warbirds and civilian aircrafts. Canada’s military aerobatic team, the Snowbirds, will be returning to Abbotsford skies for performances on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The team consists of nine Canadian designed and built CT-114 Tutors. A CF-18 Hornet TAC demo will be flown by 409 Squadron for the first time this year. 409 Squadron has a rich history at the Abbotsford Airshow having performed for many years in the ’70s and ’80s in their CF-101 Voodoos.

The A-10 Thunderbolt II will be taking over the skies this year at the show as well. It is the first Air Force aircraft specially designed for close air support of ground forces. Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the Canadian Forces Parachute Team, the SkyHawks will be demonstrating a signature canopy relative work parachute performance. Meantime, the C-17 Globemaster, which is one of the latest planes in the Canadian Air Forces inventory, will also be flying. The warbirds taking to the sky will include the T-6 Texan which is painted in the colours of the RCAF Golden Hawks, and Discovery Air Hawk One, which is an F-86 Sabre also painted in the colours of the famed Golden Hawks aerobatic team. In addition, the Supermarine Spitfire will return to Abbotsford after a long absence from the airshow, celebrating its 75th anniversary. The civilian aircrafts at this year’s show will include the T-34 Mentor flown by Julie Clark, the MX2 Aerobatic Aircraft flown by Rob Holland, and a comedy act in an 1942 Interstate Cadet flown by Kent Pietsch. Another civilian act will be the Indy Boys. An Abbotsford first, they will present a jet-powered school bus that can run up to 580 km/h.

AUGUST 12,13,14 • ABBOTSFORD INTERNATIONAL AIRP w w w. a b b o t s fo rd a i rs h o w.c o m The SpitÄre is one of the most recognizable aircraft from the Second World War. This British-built, single-seat Äghter plane was a common sight in the Royal Air Force and other Allied countries during the war years. It was originally put together as a short-range, high-performance interceptor, and its main role was to shoot down incoming German bombers. However, the aircraft was highly adaptable, and with wing variations, the SpitÄre was able to be tasked as a trainer, carrier-based Äghter, for photo reconaissance or as a Äghter-bomber. The original Merlin engine, fabricated by Rolls-Royce, put out 1,030 HP, and in later iterations, carried the Griffon powerplant, capable of generating 2,035 HP. H The SpitÄre featured at the upcoming ming A Abbotsford Airshow s o iss c clad ad in C Czechoslovak ec oslovakian o a a markings, a gs, and saw air combatt in the th late 1940s. It was Åown by Flight ght Lieut. Li Karel Posta, a highly decorated orated Äghter pilot, who earned the Czechoslovakian War Cross Äve times, Cz Medal of Valor three times, along with the French Croix de Guerre, and several other awards.

Bob Singleton and Roy Hafeli will once again team up to announce this year’s Abbotsford Airshow. In addition, Ken Hildebrant will also be returning to take to the microphone. Singleton has announced at the Abbotsford International Airshow for 41 of its 48 years. Initially, he was assistant to Abbotsford’s first announcer Toby Trowbridge. He became Abbotsford’s primary announcer in 1977. Meanwhile, Hafeli is an on-air radio personality who has always been an avid reader of aviation books. He’s also built countless model airplanes, some of which survive to this day. Roy made his first solo flight when he was just 16, and a year later he earned his private pilots licence. Hildebrandt, director of Gallery 7, is the newest voice at the show. He started his announcing career in 2007 under the guidance of Singleton and Hafeli. Hildebrant has also teamed up with Hafeli to create Hafeli and Hildebrandt Air Show Announcing, Canada’s only two man air show announcing team.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Canadian Forces Parachute Team, the SkyHawks. Over the years, the group has proudly represented Canada, showcasing the professionalism, dedication and teamwork it takes to be a part of the Canadian Forces. Across North America, the SkyHawks will be performing at over 30 shows in 2011, showcasing their thrilling and exciting act of parachute Canopy Relative Work. Since its inception, the group has had many changes. The most notable change took place in 1977 when the team traded the Para-Commander round parachute for the more manoeuvrable Ram-Air square parachute. This advance in team equipment allowed for more dynamic and crowd-pleasing performances. Canopy formations has been a major portion of demonstrations since the 1989 season. But one part of the team that hasn’t changed is the signature of the SkyHawks: the Canadian Flag parachute. The team has also achieved a number of successes, including the world’s most northerly demonstration jump at Canadian Forces Station Alert on the northern tip of Ellesmere Island on Sept. 19, 1982. At the Abbotsford Airshow, fans can expect a colourful and exciting performance. For more information, visit www.skyhawks.forces.gc.ca.
