Jet power the name of the game at the Abbotsford Airshow Aug 12-14.

From the F-35 to the F-18 Hornet and Breitling jet team, it's going to get noisy at the annual airshow.

The Breitling Jet Team from Dijon

The much-anticipated Canadian debut of the F-35 won’t be the only jet flying at the Abbotsford Airshow in the Lower Mainland Aug. 12-14.

The Breitling Jet Team from France returns for the second year in a row to perform aerobatics that rival the Canadian Snowbirds.

The Breitling team is a professional civilian flight team that flies seven Czech-made L39 Albatros aircraft, which are twin-seater military training jets. Pilots fly within three metres of each other and can reach speeds of 700 km/h.

The US Navy F/A-18 Superhornet and the Canadian CF-18 Hornet will also fly several displays throughout the weekend.

If you didn’t get enough speed from Thunder in the Valley last weekend in Port Alberni and you’re heard to the mainland, check out the Airshow. Tickets are available through Save-On-Foods or at the gate.
