Every year, the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) selects a special group of people to make up the CF-18 Demonstration Team. The Team is truly a national team with members selected from RCAF units across the country. All are selected for their superior performance, dedication to excellence, and the desire to represent Canada’s operational air force.
April 1, 2024, marks 100 years of service for the RCAF as a distinct military element. The CF-18 Demo Team is proud to represent Canada and the RCAF throughout the 2024 demonstration season as we celebrate the RCAF’s Centennial; highlighting our distinct heritage; recognizing our people; and looking forward to our bright future.
Throughout the 2024 Centennial season a specially painted CF-18 Hornet, featuring a unique commemorative paint job, will wow audiences at 18 locations across Canada and one in the United Kingdom as part of Operation INSPIRATION 2024.
2024 marks a significant milestone for the RCAF and provides a unique opportunity, through the CF-18 Demonstration Team, to showcase Air Force personnel and their capabilities, while proudly celebrating our past – present – and future. We’re pleased to have Captain Robert, and his team of highly motivated and professional technicians, represent the RCAF as the 2024 CF-18 Demonstration Team to celebrate the RCAF Centennial during the upcoming airshow season.
Major-General Iain Huddleston, Commander, 1 Canadian Air Division
