Ground Displays arrive for the Fort St. John Air Show

There will be a number of ground displays for the 2009 Fort St. John International Air Show Sunday July 19th.

One of them is the CT-114 Tutor which landed in Fort St. John on Friday.  The Canadair CL-41, designated the CT-114 Tutor in Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and later unified Canadian Forces use, is a jet trainer aircraft designed and built by Canadair. Ordered in September 1961, the aircraft went on to serve as the Canadian Forces primary jet trainer until 2000, when it was replaced by the CT-155 Hawk and CT-156 Harvard II. The CL-41G supplied to Malaysia was built as a ground-attack aircraft.

The Tutor is perhaps best recognized as the aircraft used by the Snowbirds airshow team.

A number of other planes will be arriving Saturday at the Fort St. John Airport, including two CF-18 jets.  Keep an eye on the skies over Fort St. John at around 3:30pm as they will be putting an amazing show before landing.
