Kick-start your summer by experiencing amazing aerial displays at the 2014 Waterloo Air Show. Aviation is showcased both in the air and on the ground. Returning favourites will include spectacular displays by the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, Canada’s CF-18 fighter jet demonstration, daring aerobatics, warbirds and more.
Four new acts will be in Waterloo this year:
Acts rounding out the 2014 Waterloo Air Show line-up include:
- Canadian Forces CF-18 demonstration jet – Canada’s fighter jet
- L-29 – flown by air show co-producer Richard Cooper
- Gord Price – a 71-year-old aerobatic pilot from Thornbury flying a YAK 50, Serial #1
- Wayne Hadath – a Kitchener resident who races his home-built F1-Rocket
- Danny Richer – Brantford resident flying his Strikemaster
- Pyro – lots of smoke and flame — kaboom!
(all acts are subject to change due to operational duties and mechanical difficulties)
A Static Display (aircraft parked on the tarmac all weekend) will offer this year’s guests additional opportunities to see aircraft up close, take photos and speak to the pilots. Most significantly are a number of WWII and post-WWII aircraft including a B-17 (offering rides), TBM Avenger, AC-47 Spooky, C-46 Commando, C-123 Provider and a B-25 Mitchell.
This two-day family event will also offer additional entertainment and activities including an Autograph Tent, displays, vendors, a kids amusement area, Food Truck Alley and licensed areas.
