The 2016 RCAF CF-188 Demo aircraft design represented the British
Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP), as developed by the 410 TF (Operational
Training) Squadron’s graphic artist Jim Belliveau. The yellow represents the training aircraft, the black
is for the dark times of war and the red is for flames against the darkness. The BCATP ran from
1939 until 1945 and was carried out in more than one hundred communities across Canada,
training 131,553 aircrew. The 2016 Demo Team aircraft was piloted by Captain Ryan “Roid” Kean.
