Abbotsford airshow 2017

Strange how things work out: I had not been to the Abbotsford Airshow for several years.... and now I have gone to two successive shows!

I am just starting to sort through the 2,000+ photographs I took, but I had to stop to post photographs of the biggest drawcards that made me go again this year.

The absolute star of the show for me was the F86 Sabre:

The second big attraction for me was the DH Vampire:

The CF18 in Canada's 150th anniversary colours was also a sight to see:

I was also pretty keen on seeing the F35 in the air. The photograph below makes it look almost alien....

Conditions were rather difficult with still a fair bit of smoke haze left from the local wildfires, plus the sun being from the wrong side. Atmospheric interference (Heat shimmer) on longer shots was a major hassle.

I am still sorting through the 2,000+ photographs I took…. but for me these were immediate prospects for sending out. Also got some lovely video of a Harvard aerobatic team and of course the Snowbirds: will be posting a video on Youtube after suitable editing.
