Linda the Giraffe

Linda the Giraffe began her career working as an ornament at the Billy Barker Casino Hotel in Quesnel. Longing for adventure, she ran off with the CF-18 Demo Team after the 2013 airshow.

She toured the country with the crew going from airshow to airshow for two years, sending pictures back home to keep the folks up to date with her adventures.

Linda travelled all over Canada, North America and even overseas. (She boarded a C130 Hercules and traveled abroad to Kabul, Afghanistan.)

She hung out with Canadian astronaut, Commander Chris Hadfield and dipped her toe in the Atlantic Ocean. On the west coast she helped park the jet in Abbotsford, and became part of the CF-18 selfie club in 2014.

If you look carefully, you will see the bullet hole in her flank that she received in Texas. She was wounded while on duty.

She has flown in many different types of military aircraft including C130 Hercules, the Voodoo and F-16. 

Linda travelled with the CF-18 Demo Team for the remainder of the 2013 airshow circuit, all airshows in 2014, and part of the 2015 season before the team returned Linda to her hometown airshow, Quesnel Skyfest 2015.

Everywhere Linda the Giraffe went, she received another sticker or pin until she was covered head to toe. 

SkyFest was so impressed by her commitment to aviation, that we have included her in our logo. You will see her peeking up from the trees to watch one of her beloved planes perform a loop!

Linda loves people to take a picture with her and post it on their social media. Just make sure to Tag her and use #LindaSelfieClub
