Trenton air show – Pictures now online

CFB Trenton

Did some quick processing and put a bunch of pix from the Trenton air show up online

The C-17 Globemaster III put one one heck of a demonstration.  This is what over 40,000 pounds of thrust will do to a 1/4 million pound (empty) aircraft.  This big, and I mean big, transport shot into the sky handling more like a fighter than a hauler.

Well, maybe it doesn’t have quite the performance of a CF-18 Hornet which seems to stand on its tail at liftoff but still very impressive.  This beautifully painted Hornet, piloted by a young man with the unfortunate callsign “Donor”, twisted and turned for a few minutes before joining up with 2 other aircraft for the Centennial flypast.

The Hornet flanked by Hawk One, a restored CF-86 Sabre, and a Tutor from the Snowbirds team in a once in a lifetime photo opportunity.

Speaking of the Snowbirds, they put on their usual spectacular show.

    1. Yes, I know. This one is painted in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of powered flight in Canada. The centennial logo is on the tail and the names of 100 important people in Canadian aviation are on the fuselage. The aircraft was painted in Cold Lake Alberta.
