Did you know that the wings can be folded independantly? I was at an airshow a number of years ago that included a demo flight by a CF-18. At the end of the flight, the pilot had the plane wave at the crowd.

Yup, standard part of the act, my personal favourite was the square loop. There are not a lot of airplanes that can do that without getting in trouble. It allowed them to keep the show within the confines of the base especially when ceiling was too low for a real show.
