A great time in Waterloo

Had a wonderful weekend standing on the hot ramp at the 2011 Waterloo Air Show at the Region of Waterloo International Airport about an hour outside of Toronto.

Long days of standing on hot tarmac may not sound like fun but when you get to spend it close to aircraft and aviators you somehow forget about how sore your feet are.

The show had a great selection of aircraft from vintage to modern including Canada’s Snowbird team along with the Viper East F-16 Demo Team and the CF-18 Hornet Demonstration Unit.

These pictures come from an early morning photo op we arranged for the media on Saturday just as the sun was rising.  Of course, I had to take a few shots of my own.  By far my favourite is this one of the Snowbird #9 (Capt. Brett Glaseser) aircraft.
