Did you know that there are two varieties of Snowbirds in Canada?

There are the ones like hubs and myself who love to travel south during our cold winters.

The much more impressive Snowbirds, officially known as the 431 Air Demonstration Squadron, make up the military aerobatics/air show flight demonstration team of the Royal Canadian Air Force.

The Moose Jaw Air Show is an annual event where this team is featured. They also do formation fly-bys for special occasions and events all across Canada and have flown in air shows in the USA.

The Snowbirds train at and are based out of CFB Moose Jaw. This monument to them stands at the Moose Jaw visitor information centre.

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
