This is the new 2021 CF-18 Demo scheme for the upcoming air show season.
This year's theme is 'Strong At Home'. It commemorates all domestic operations undertaken by the RCAF, as well as the 50th anniversary of the Snowbirds. An Eagle head design adorns the tail, with its feathers represented by maple leaves. The 8 leaves are meant to represent 8 of the 9 Snowbirds, the ninth being out as the missing man, as a tribute to all Canadians lost this year.
The inner tails feature a large maple leaf and all 12 named domestic operations of the RCAF.
