CF-18 Demo to U.K.

Canada’s CF-18 demonstration team will cross the Atlantic next week for a series of shows commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force. The mission will begin Jul. 3 and will involve midair refueling of the show plane crossing the ocean. “We are so excited to be heading to the United Kingdom … to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force.” the team said in a social media post.

While in the U.K., the aircraft will perform at the RNAS Yeovilton International Air Day and the Royal International Air Tattoo. This year’s demo aircraft is painted in a theme commemorating the 60th anniversary of the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
