VIDEO: Look back at the 1977 Abbotsford International Airshow

New images from the 1977 show have recently surfaced online

The decade of the 1970s saw big growth for the Abbotsford International Airshow, and a new video recently published on YouTube has showcased some spectacular images from the 1977 show.

The popular Airrailimages YouTube account released a new video on Monday with a number of pictures from the event.

Some of the featured planes from the show included: an F-14, CF-5s and a commemorative CF-101 Voodoo.

The 1977 show was also one year after the 1976 show, which was officially recognized as a United States Bi-Centennial event even though it took place in Canada. The US Navy Blue Angels and US Army Golden Knights joined the Snowbirds to commemorate the event.
