A CF-18 Hornet piloted by Capt. Patrick Gobeil took to the skies as part of the Abbotsford International Airshow on Friday morning.

Gobeil, a Canadian Forces Snowbird from 2004 to 2006, demonstrated the capabilities of the “True North” fighter jet, while an in-cockpit video camera recorded the experience.
