The Canadian Forces Snowbirds have announced their 2021 airshow schedule today at the virtual ICAS Convention.
The Snowbirds are the official aerobatic team of the Royal Canadian Air Force, flying nine CT-114 Tutors in their display. Although next year will mark 51 years since the team was formed, it will be only their 50th display season, as no shows were performed in 2020.
Notably, the team plan to undertake an almost month-long visit to the southwestern United States at the end of the year, in addition to Thunder Over Niagara, which will likely be supported remotely.
North American military airshow teams traditionally announce their schedules at the the International Council of Air Shows’ annual convention, which is being held virtually this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
