since it started in 1962, and that was because I was transfered to Winnipeg for two years in the seventies. My son and I have been going since the late seventies. Abbotsford is one of the biggest airshows in the world and it attracts people from all over North America. It is estimated that over 300,000 will see this year's airshow over the three days We go to other airshows like Payne Field in Washington or the Reno Airshow, but Abbotsford is the show we wouldn't miss.
I've been an airplane nut since I was a kid. I flew with the RCAF in the late fifties and early sixties and haven't yet lost my love of airplanes....any airplanes.
The following link will give you times and pricing and a list of aircraft and performers. No doubt we'll see Canada's proposed new heavy lift aircraft, the C-17, do a bit of flying.
We are going on the Saturday so I won't be here from early Friday to sometime Sunday.
