As you can see, the rain cleared up and we had a wonderful time at the Air show. There were lots of old WWII planes (one of the only two remaining Lancasters, and the only remaining working Mosquito, as well as Spitfires and Hurricanes), a Lysander, an aeronautic stunt team of 3 Harvards, some WWI replica planes and of course, Squadron 431, the Snowbirds. (My son, above, has a flight jacket with their squadron patches on it). I didn't take too many pictures, because, really, the fun is watching the action rather than trying to record it! But here are some of the 50 various manouevres that the Snowbirds performed.
While I can honestly say that I would probably have chosen crafting over the Air Show (you would have, too, admit it!), I did have a good time hanging out with my son and my dad, and we're already making plans for the 'big' airshow that happens on Labour Day weekend.
