Abbotsford Airshow is listed amongst the World's Top Ten Airshows

A 'USA Today' article lists “Ten Best Airshows around the world” and includes Abbotsford!

The Abbotsford International Airshow was honoured to be included on the list alongside other famous airshows such as the Oshkosh EAA Airventure, the British Royal International Air Tattoo and the Reno Air Races.

The 'Top Ten' list was republished in USA Today's travel section on 26 February, 2013.  The list was taken from, a travel website that provides top-ten 'musts' in hundreds of categories.

Citing Abbotsford as Canada's largest airshow, the list noted that Abbotsford attracts more than 125,000 spectators to watch dozens of performers take to the skies, including the Canadian Snowbirds jet demonstration team, Canadian Army SkyHawks (parachuting team), USAF Thunderbirds and USN Blue Angels.   Abbotsford was the only Canadian airshow on the list.
