Snowbirds Pause, Airshows Cancelled »

Several upcoming airshows in the U.S. and Canada have been canceled, following an announcement Monday evening that the Canadian Forces’ Snowbirds have temporarily suspended air show performances.

Airshow. “A reduced training period hampered by poor weather which continued into the show season, resulted in numerous canceled practices,” said Major Patrick Gobeil, Snowbirds team lead, in the Facebook post.
