THE CANADIAN PRESS https://twitter.com/cdnpress https://www.facebook.com/thecanadianpress A pair of F-35 stealth fighters roared into British Columbia on Thursday for the annual Abbotsford International Airshow. One pilot says he's been "blown away" by the controversial plane's capabilities. (Aug. 12) The Canadian Press is Canada’s most trusted news leader in providing real-time, bilingual multimedia content for online, mobile and emerging platforms.
This year I came prepared with an actual camcorder, two batteries, and a few SD cards. 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. Normally I like the Thunderbirds or someone like that more, but again this year's line-up was pretty lean compared to years in the past. 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 ...
A proposal to shore up Canada’s aging fleet of CF-18 fighter jets with used models from Australia could work, defence experts said Wednesday, but a better option would be to simply move ahead on permanent replacements as soon as possible. Earlier this week, the government confirmed publicly that it is looking into buying an undisclosed number of Australian F/A-18 jets and “associated equipment” to fill what Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan has called a “capability gap” that will open as Canada’s CF-18s enter their fourth decade of service.

Canada intends to purchase 18 Boeing Super Hornet fighter jets and, while the Liberal government says it has a rough idea what that might cost, it stopped short of claiming its plan will save money in the long run. The Liberals had promised during the election campaign to purchase a replacement aircraft for the CF-18 jet fleet, pointing out that it would go for a cheaper alternative to the controversial F-35 stealth fighter selected by the Conservative government. But Tuesday, Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan announced the Liberals would proceed with the purchase of 18 Super Hornets, in addition to holding a competition for the replacement of the CF-18 fleet later. The government noted that the F-35 could be selected as the winner for that competition if the price is right. This new proce...

Newly released Pentagon documents allege that Canadian fighter jets may have killed up to 27 civilians during an airstrike in Northern Iraq. Canada says the claim is not credible. The internal document cites a Kurdish witness who has claimed the January 21st attack near Mosul killed between six to 27 Iraqi civilians. The airstrike was part of attacks by the so-called coalition against the Daesh terrorist. Such attacks are said to be aimed at stopping the advance of the takfiri terrorists against Kurdish Peshmarga forces. But Ottawa says there was no evidence to back up the initial report after reviewing intelligence, combat footage and speaking with local authorities. The US and some of its allies have been carrying out air raids against what they say are ISIL's positions in Iraq since A...

Three CF-118 Hornet fighter jets from 409 Squadron of Cold Lake Alberta arrive at Joint-Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam for RIMPAC 2014. The McDonnell Douglas CF-18 Hornet (official military designation CF-188) is a Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) (formerly Canadian Forces Air Command) fighter aircraft, based on the American McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet fighter.
