Another nice shot tubthumper. You are going to Airventure this year to take more pictures for me to enjoy I hope. How many 2 seat CF-18s are there?

From wiki
Originally Ordered 138: 98 CF-188A / 40 CF-188B. 15 CF-188A and 2 CF-188B have crashed since 1984, never during combat, killing a total of 7 pilots. 1 CF-188A and 7 CF-188B have been removed from operational service. Many of the crashed or retired aircraft are still used for parts as well as experimental and research purposes. Stationed at 3 Wing Bagotville and 4 Wing Cold Lake. Often referred to as "CF-18".
A= one seat
B= two seats

Interesting to see the stats! I'm assuming the removals were based on structural wear associated with the two seaters being involved in more training?

Great Photo Tub!!

Thanks for the comments everyone. I don't think I'll make it to Oshkosh this year, but surely planning to go within the next couple of years.

Citation landing 33, you have Flight Exec ramp, then a warehouse, then empty field, so taken from empty field (your above the fence line) looking East.

^ It looks as though the long retired '40 something' year old F-28s in the background are clambering to see the 80 year old DC-3 that's still hard at work. I love it! :D

Liberated alllied POW's?

Regardless, being able to trace back a particular aircraft, or even better yet, being able to fly an aircraft of which you have a picture of in action 50, 60 or so plus years is a "thrill" to say the least. I often wish my "bird" could "talk"... *sigh*

All the best,
