DE HAVILLAND MOSQUITO
CONFIRMED FOR THE 2013 HAMILTON AIRSHOW

Jerry Yagen (Military Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach) and Dave Rohrer (Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum) are planning for Jerry Yagen's newly restored de Havilland Mosquito to attend the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum's 2013 Hamilton Airshow on June 15 & 16!  (Photo: Gavin Conroy)

The Mosquito's appearance at the Hamilton Airshow will be the first appearance of this historic aircraft in Canada and it is planned to be part of a special formation flight that will include the Lancas ter, Spitfire & Hurricane - an aircraft formation and sight that hasn't been seen in the skies over Hamilton since 1990 as photographed by Rick Radell.
The rare Mosquito will definitely be the star of the vintage aircraft line-up that will include many rare and unique machines that will be announced in March.


Please note that the Mosquito will be arriving early to be the subject of a special featured event at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum on Friday June 14th that will include discussions with several former Mosquito pilots including George Stewart (pictured) who was recently honoured sharing his knowledge and experience to a new generation of Mosquito pilots in New Zealand.  Details of this event will be announced closer to the Airshow. The Mosquito will be departing Hamilton on Sunday June 16th at about 10:00 am to appear at a special commitment in Washington D.C.

MATT YOUNKIN & HIS BEECH 18
RETURNING TO THE 2013 HAMILTON AIRSHOW

The Beech 18 was never designed for aerobatic flight.  However, that doesn't make it incapable of doing just that. Matt Younkin's  performance begins with a roll on take off followed by a series of Cuban eights, point-rolls and even a loop.  Matt performed for the first time ever in Canada at the 2012 Hamilton Airshow and some people say his performance stole the show.  We are pleased to welcome Matt Younkin and his Beech 18 back to the Hamilton Airshow.

RCAF SNOWBIRDS
ALSO RETURNING TO THE 2013 HAMILTON AIRSHOW


While not a noisy, fast or as modern as some of the other aerobatic teams out there, the Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds always put on a first class performance that is second to none!  The Snowbirds demonstrate the high level of professionalism, teamwork, excellence, discipline and dedication inherent in the women and men of the Royal Canadian Air Force.  The Snowbirds have flown the CT-114 Tutor jet since 1971. The aircraft was designed and built in Canada and is used by the RCAF as its basic pilot training aircraft. The jets are painted in a distinctive red and white paint scheme symbolic of Canada's national flag. As members of the nation's military, the Snowbirds are proud to fly Canada's colours across North America.
