The 3 hour flying show begins at 5:30 pm and features a unique blend of aerobatics, parachutists, jets and vintage aircraft.
The star attraction for the 2015 Hamilton Airshow is the world's only civilian owned Harrier! One of the most requested aircraft on the airshow circuit, the Harrier is known for its vertical/short takeoff and landing (V/STOL).
We are also thrilled to present a unique and fast paced formation airshow act flying their four Yak 52s - "YAK ATTACK" fly an intense display of pure quality.
Many of the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum's fleet of vintage military aircraft including the Avro Lancaster, B-25 Mitchell, Fairey Firefly, Westland Lysander, DC-3 Dakota (with parachute jumpers), PBY Canso and the latest addition, a Noorduyn Norseman will be flying in the show. Various trainers including Harvard, Cornell, Stearman, Tiger Moth, Fleet 21, Fort and Chipmunk will fly as part of our "Yellow Birds" display.
Additional warbirds performing - from Vintage Wings of Canada - their P-51 Mustang and P-40 Kittyhawk as well, the Military Aviation Museum will be displaying their newest Focke Wulf FW190 plus de Havilland Mosquito, Supermarine Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane. Additional vintage aircraft flying include also include the Waterloo Warbirds T-33. The Great War Flying Museum will also be displaying their World War I aircraft in a mock dogfight.
No airshow seems complete these days without a jet truck so the Flash Fire Jet Truck will be rocketing down the runway right in front of you.
Aerobatics will be flown by Hamilton's own Trevor Rafferty in his custom built Javelin. As well, Rick Volker's years of aerobatic performances in the Sukhoi have given Rick the ability to squeeze new exciting maneuvers out of his Harvard that seem impossible!
