CF-18 Hornet bombing runs highlighted at Abbotsford International Airshow
The Abbotsford International Airshow has always been a place where the military feels at home.
This weekend, organizers gave the crowd what it wanted, delivering bombing runs and authentic-looking battlefield scenes.
You can see it all below on the YouTube video, which shows how CF-18 Hornet jets blow things up.
Here's what a firefight looks like in Abbotsford.
The video also reveals how Canadian Forces "put a little hurtin' on" the enemy after the CF-18 planes have done their work.
One of the people watching the show is overheard saying that he loves the smell of gunpowder.
The airshow also featured an historic B-25 Mitchell plane dropping its payload.
And you can be sure that if there were warplanes in the War of 1812, they would have been on display as well.
