Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds
Visit Victoria, B.C. this August 12, 2015 to witness the iconic Snowbirds in action! The Snowbirds aerobatics team is scheduled to thrill audiences in Victoria with their close-formation flying.
Pilots will kiss the sky in nine Canadian-built CT-114 Tutor aircraft pilots. During a performance, the Snowbirds fly at speeds ranging from 185 to 590 kilometres an hour, with distances between jets coming as close as 1.2 metres.
The 431 Air Demonstration Squadron demonstrates the skills and teamwork inherent in the women and men of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and the Canadian Forces.
The Canadian Forces Snowbirds (431 Squadron) are Ambassadors to the CH.I.L.D. Foundation, bringing much needed awareness and meaningful research to very ill children with IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease). This year ‘Snowbirds Fly for CH.I.L.D.' will take place in Victoria over Clover Point on August 12, 2015 @ 6:00 P.M.
There will be free parking and a free shuttle at Ogden Point. Shuttles run from 4:00 P.M. and 9:00 P.M and take visitors to Dallas Road & Cook Street. Don't miss live entertainment, food trucks and a beer garden at the Breakwater Barge to kick off the festivities at 4:00 P.M. and running until 9:00 P.M.
