McDonnell Douglas FA-18 Hornet (18-8734)
To applause and waves from the crowd, Royal Canadian Air Force Captain Matthew Kutryk (RCAF Demonstration Team, 4 Wing, CFB Cold Lake) displays the US flag as a tribute to the citizens of the United States and to the friendship between Canada and the United States as he taxies his CF-18 Hornet (188734), painted in the "Red Maple" special livery in recognition of Canada's 150th Anniversary of Confederation, to a parking location on the ramp of Minden-Tahoe Airport (Douglas County Airport ... KMEV) after having completed the last performance of the Demo Team's 2017 season. Capt Kutryk's fabulous exhibition of flying skill and F-18 maneuverability was one of the highlight performances at the Aviation Roundup Airshow in Minden.
