Canada’s sym­bol of air force ex­cel­lence, the Snow­birds aerial demon­stra­tion team, flew its ac­cep­tance show at 15 Wing Moose Jaw under cold, cloudy April skies. Theme for the new team with the 431 Air Demon­stra­tion Squadron is a Tra­di­tion of Ex­cel­lence, in the 50th year since the Golden Cen­ten­naires be­gan the awe­some aerial demon­stra­tion flights for Canada’s 100th birth­day cel­e­bra­tions. The team flew nu­mer­ous solo and team pat­terns with one flight by two CT-114 Tu­tors, a trib­ute to the Bat­tle of Vimy. The two Tu­tor jet craft in­flight sym­bol­ized the two tow­ers of the Vimy Me­mo­rial in France. Along with a pat­tern for Canada’s 150th birth­day the team flew one for all mem­bers of the mil­i­tary. Snow­birds com­man­der is Lt.-Col. Brad Win­trup of North York, Ont. Team lead is Ma­jor Pa­trick Gobeil of La Baie, Que­bec. A Tu­tor air­craft with the Canada 150 paint scheme will be fea­tured at some lo­ca­tions for the team’s ap­pear­ances this year. The show sched­ule started three days after the ac­cep­tance show and ends in mid-Oc­to­ber in Cal­i­for­nia and Idaho. Moose Jaw res­i­dents can view the Snow­birds at Side­walk Days in July.
