The Royal Canadian Air Force has released 2023 airshow schedules for the Snowbirds aerobatic team as part of the International Council of Air Shows Convention in Las Vegas. It includes a full season of airshows in Canada, and two appearances in the United States.
The Snowbirds, flying the CT-114 Tutor, are gearing up for a full airshow season after a disrupted year in 2022, marred by poor weather during pre-season training, a crash landing in British Columbia and multiple safety stand-downs, meaning that more than half of planned performances were cancelled.
