Is this aircraft connected with some Anniversary event? Noted the yellow ring circumferencing the "British" roundal? What damage can be expected to the tarmac with the hook down?

I would imagine not much damage to the runway surface as the hook has a flat face that contacts the ground, as for the paint is was to recognize the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain

Nice catch!
David Gorter
My question would be: Why is the hook down since the plane isn't landing on a carrier? Or is the hook brought down automatically?

This was a low light display at an airshow, they lowered the hook because they knew it would throw sparks, just part of the show, besides its a Canadian CF-18, gotta use the hook for something.

Great photo

I was a Chino that evening for the twilight show. Great show! Assume the tail hook had a different metal than normal because there were way to many sparks, as a former USAF controller I've seen tail hooks deployed before.

Is that not a maple leaf in there indicating a Canadian aircraft?
