Canadian Harvard Aerobatic Team - Twilight Airshow

The Canadian Harvard Aerobatic Team, based out of Woodstock, Ontario, is a professional 4-plane formation aerobatic team which flies as a tribute to the veterans of World War II, and to inspire others through teamwork and passion. The team flies 3 Canadian Built Harvards and 1 American built Harvard. The Harvard is a Pratt & Whitney powered, dual tandem seated, low winged metal monoplane (with the exception of fabric covered control surfaces). Originally used as advanced trainers by the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) for the purposes of night, formation, aerobatic, light bombing and gunnery (later rocketry) training. We know the Harvard by the name of the T-6 Texan or SNJ in the United States. The 4 aircraft the team flies today were all built between 1941 and 1952. They have been in continuous service for over 60 years due to the care and support of their operators.

Randy Ball FIGHTERJETS MiG-17F

The MiG-17F was a very nimble fighter that could prove deadly unless respected when engaged by pilots with superior training and tactics such as those used by the US Navy & Air Force. One moment's complacency when fighting against the MiG-17F could prove fatal. It was flown by over 20 countries, three of which still fly it. Because of its famous heritage and great maneuverability, it makes one of the best air show jets in the world, able to stay in front of the fans while still flying at great speeds.

Randy Ball's own MiG-17F, #1611, entered service with the Soviet bloc in March 1960 and wasn't withdrawn from service until May 1990. It was then brought to America and spent almost four years in restoration. It is one of only a handful of vintage jets flying the North American Air Show circuit. It has an authentic paint job and is the ONLY MiG available for ground display with fully restored guns.
