The Canadian Forces Snowbirds are scheduled to return to the Abbotsford International Airshow in 2023.
The @CFSnowbirds Twitter posted an initial schedule for the popular performers and a stop in Abbotsford is set from Aug. 11 to 13.
Good morning everyone! We are proud to announce our initial 2023 schedule at the #ICAS2022 convention in Las Vegas, NV. We are thrilled to visit our 10 Canadian provinces and our neighbours to the south. pic.twitter.com/wdYSEyFodc

The Snowbirds were supposed to appear at the 2022 AIA, but following a crash on a takeoff in Fort St. John on Aug. 2 they were unable to perform at this year’s airshow.
The pilot did not sustain any injuries in the crash but the aircraft was damaged.
The Abbotsford stop is the lone B.C. visit on the tentative schedule for the Snowbirds.
The last time the Snowbirds appeared in Abbotsford was the 2021 AIA.
The 2023 AIA is scheduled to run from Aug. 11 to 13. For more information, visit abbotsfordairshow.com.
