Nice shots ...

The Canadian Air Force Tac Demo F/A-18A 2017 version looks nice.
Great paint scheme!

Overall, though, the Canadian Forces Hornets are pretty tired and should have been replaced years ago.
The Trudeau government's stop gap measure to purchase a small number of F/A-18'F' Super Hornets while the Federal Government makes a final decision on what fighter will replace the original Hornet, isn't enough.

I believe the single engine F-35 is not what the Canadian Forces needs.

Due to the vast expanse of Canadian territory regularly patrolled by our aircraft, we need a dual engined airframe.

The solution would be to select the F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet as the permanent replacement for the original CF-18s.

Dual engines, proven technology, and a ready parts supply mean the Super Hornet is the logical choice.
