Abottsford Air Show Redux

I went to the 50th annual Abbotsford International Airshow with my dad. The trip there doesn’t need to be mentioned, but the show does. We went on Saturday, August 11th. When we got there, the first thing we did was check out the static aircraft section. There were large military cargo planes you could go inside, and fighter jets to look at. The show featured: a jet bus, a jet porta-potty, a USN F/A Superhornet, a Canadian Forces Tactical Demo and the USAF Thunderbirds.

At the show, I learned about all kinds of things about planes, such as how fighter jets do a maneuver known as the square loop. I even learned some things that are Top Secret (just kidding). The best part of the show was the Thunderbirds. They did some of the most amazing aerobatics you would ever see! Another great part of the show was the jet bus, which is the world’s fastest school bus. Speaking of jet powered stuff, I also saw
the worlds only jet powered porta-potty!

The show was great, but it’s not the kind of thing you would want to go to every year.
