Saskatoon, SK Canada (10) – Canada Remembers Airshow 2017 (Dundurn)
It was a rain threatening day but it was the best backdrop for the Canada Remembers Airshow 2017 at the Dundurn Army Base. We were honoured to be the witnesses of The Snowbirds’ first show of the season and a rare opportunity at the end of the show (as revealed in my last two photos).
Their first approach to the show.

Our Canadian flag
From 3,000 feet to right on target (the orange mat beside the red and white sign). An amazing feat as it was a really windy day.
Celebrating Canada 150, the CF18 shows its’ birthday colours.
While most of the people exited for home, the few remaining visitors were treated to a fly by as the Snowbirds head back to Moose Jaw from Saskatoon. A rare occasion as it included all twelve instead of nine (you only see eleven as the twelfth one was off to the side videotaping the flight) and the CF18
An encore fly over that brought blue skies
