Fighter jets, a parachute team and other aircraft will be in the skies over north Whatcom County this weekend for the 51st annual Abbotsford Airshow,
Though the airshow is in the British Columbia border town, aircraft in the show typically fly through U.S. airspace, including frequent flights in the area between Lynden and Sumas.
Budget cuts in the U.S. have forced the cancellation of American military aircraft, according to The Province newspaper in Vancouver, B.C., so this year’s show will be a tribute to the Royal Canadian Air Force.
Among the attractions are demonstrations by a Canadian Forces CF-18 Hornet team, the CF Skyhawks parachute team, and the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, a military aerobatic team.
