• Canada's next jet fighter

    Canada appears poised to buy 65 F-35's to replace 150 F-18's. Why would we bother if all we can afford is 65 planes. We should just keep the money. It could be better used. We could buy a small Caribbean vacation spot or something else useful. On the serious side, we need an airforce, but we also need more than 65 jets. 65 is an embarrassing number. We also need twin engine and more speed. Mach 1.6 is also embarrassing. The Russians are going to have a field day with this plane. All of their fighter jets are 500 mph faster. Boggles the mind.

Yet again, the Canadian Snowbirds Air Demostration Team jets stole the show with their special brand of formation flying with these aerobatic stunt jets at the Abbotsford Airshow.

However, no matter who else was here, this was another flawless routine from these high flyers! Their smooth flying and beautiful colors helped me recording them quite easily, especially compared to prior years Abbotsford International Airshow when all I had was an iPhone to record video of them. See below for more information about this amazing aviation team: Officially known as the Royal Canadian Air Force's 431 Air Demonstration Squadron, the Snowbirds are Canada's military aerobatics or air show flight demonstration team whose purpose is to "demonstrate the skill, professionalism, and teamwork of Canadian Forces personnel".[2] The squadron is based at CFB Moose Jaw, near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. The Snowbirds are the first Canadian air demonstration team to be designated as a squadron.[3] The show team flies 11 CT-114 Tutors—nine for aerobatic performances, including two solo aircraft, and two as spares, flown by the team coordinators. Approximately 80 Canadian Forces personnel work with the squadron full-time; 24 personnel are in the show team that travels during the show season. The Snowbirds are the only major military aerobatics team that operates without a support aircraft.[4] The Snowbirds continue the flying demonstration tradition of previous Canadian air force aerobatic teams, which include the Siskins, the Blue Devils, the Golden Hawks, and the Golden Centennaires. Although 431 Air Demonstration Squadron was formed in 1978, its history truly begins during the Second World War when as part of the Commonwealth contribution to aircrew for the war in Europe 431 (Iroquois) Squadron Royal Canadian Air Force was created under the control of RAF Bomber Command.[5] No. 431 Squadron formed on 11 November 1942, at RAF Burn (in North Yorkshire), flying Wellington B.X medium bombers with No. 4 Group RAF Bomber Command. The squadron moved to RAF Tholthorpe in mid-1943 as part of the move to bring all RCAF squadrons into one operational group -- No. 6 Group RCAF -- and converted to Halifax B.V four-engined heavy bombers. In December 1943 the squadron moved to RAF Croft where it was re-equipped with Halifax III's and later, Lancaster B.X aircraft. The squadron moved to RCAF Station Dartmouth, Nova Scotia after the war, disbanding there on 5 September 1945. No. 431 (Fighter) Squadron re-formed at RCAF Station Bagotville on 18 January 1954, using the new Canadair F-86 Sabre. The squadron was formed on a temporary basis until there were enough new CF-100s available to fulfill RCAF squadron needs. No. 431's duties included aerial combat training and displaying the capabilities of jet operations to the public at air shows, the largest being Operation Prairie Pacific: a 50-minute exhibition that travelled to selected locations across western Canada. The team consisted of four Sabres and a solo aircraft. This was the first Sabre team to be authorized to perform formation aerobatics in Canada.[6] The unit was disbanded on 1 October 1954. A contest to give the air demonstration team a formal name was organized by Lt. Colonel Tom Reid and Senior Administrative Assistant Lois Boyle. The spirit building contest was held at the CFB Moose Jaw base elementary school (Bushell Park Elementary) and resulted in the name Snowbirds.[7] The name reflected the aircraft's distinctive mostly-white paint scheme used at the time, connoted grace and beauty and was clearly linked to its Canadian origins. Coincidentally, "Snowbird" was the name of an Anne Murray hit song that was popular at the time.[8] The name was formally adopted on 25 June 1971. The Snowbirds were officially authorized to be designated the Canadian Forces Air Demonstration Team on 15 January 1975. The team was formed into its own squadron by reactivating 431 Squadron (renamed 431 Air Demonstration Squadron) on 1 April 1978.

Canada seeks to buy Boeing jets as interim defense measure Canada on Thursday unveiled plans to buy 18 Boeing Corp Super Hornets as a stop-gap measure while it prepared an open five-year competition to replace its aging fleet of fighter jets. Procurement Minister Judy Foote told a news conference the government would launch immediate talks with Boeing for the Super Hornets, in a victory for the U.S. plane maker if the order goes ahead. One defense contractor said the choice could be interpreted as giving Boeing a long-term advantage but Foote, speaking in a phone interview, later said Ottawa would run "a real, open, transparent competition" where any firm could compete. The decision on how to replace Canada's CF-18 jets - some of which have been flying for 35 years - is politically sensitive and has been repeatedly put off. Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan said the CF-18s could no longer meet Canada's international military commitments. "Because they were not replaced, we now have a capability gap ... we need additional planes as soon as possible for an interim period," he told the news conference. The former Conservative administration said in 2010 it would buy 65 Lockheed Martin Corp F-35 jets for C$9 billion ($6.7 billion). During last year's successful election campaign, the Liberals vowed not to buy the planes on the grounds they were too costly. Sajjan said Canada would remain a member of the nine-nation consortium that helped fund development of the F-35. Lockheed Martin said that while it was disappointed with the choice of an interim fighter it was "confident the F-35 is the best solution", according to a statement. Ottawa insists the winner of the open competition must provide industrial benefits to Canadian firms. It also wants the companies to have a chance of getting work from the interim order with Boeing, Foote said. Boeing will try hard to give Canadian companies contracts that would equal the total amount Ottawa pays for the 18 Super Hornets, said Scott Day, spokesman at Boeing Defense. Foote said talks would start immediately with Boeing though a final decision would only be made once the discussions were over. Sajjan, though, said he was confident the Boeing plane met Canada's requirements. The government declined to answer any questions on cost, in particular whether the money set aside for the interim order would come out of the initial budget for the planes. Boeing's stock rose after the announcement and closed up 1.7 percent at $149.52, while Lockheed Martin shares pared gains to end the day at $264.66, up 0.5 percent.

This new process could wind up costing taxpayers even more, say industry representatives. The Super Hornets will be used to augment the existing CF-18 fleet. A new competition for replacement jets will be held after the Liberals’ defence policy review is completed, Foote said. But those new jets are not expected until the late 2020s.“Super Hornet’s advanced operational capabilities, low acquisition and sustainment costs, and Boeing’s continued investment in the Canadian aerospace industry — US$6 billion over the past five years alone, especially in Winnipeg and Manitoba — make the Super Hornet the perfect complement to Canada’s current and future fighter fleet,” he added.
