Canadian International Air Show

aviation, Flying Is Fun

Blue AngelsI was lucky enough to score some VIP tickets to the Air Show being held at the CNE this weekend.  Sunday, a couple and friends and I will be right down at Lake Ontario watching a tremendous lineup of aircraft dancing through the sky.  The latest schedule I’ve seen includes:

CF-18 Hornet             12:30
CF18/F86/Tutor        12:43
Spitfire Demo           12:48
Mike Wiskus             12:56
Horsemen P-51s      13:08
Blue Angels            13:30
F-22 Raptor Demo    14: 40
F-16 Falcon Demo    14:53
USAF Heritage Flight    15:06
Matt Chapman         15:14
SAR Helo Demo/Cadets    15:26
Open Airspace          15:41
Snowbirds/Hawk1        15:50
Hawk 1 Demo              15:55
CF Snowbirds              16:01

That makes 4 hours of fun!  The US Navy Blue Angels are making their first appearance since 1983 and should be a great sight.  Having a Raptor show up is also a treat.

We’re in the middle of a beautiful stretch of weather and the forecast is looking like we’ll have perfect conditions.  Cameras are charged up, extra memory cards are packed and I’m ready to go!
