Airshow Over Nanaimo

Snowbirds and Golden Hawk
Perform Over Nanaimo

Last night shortly after 6:00 pm you might have thought Nanaimo airport was now receiving jet aircraft as the Snowbirds delighted Nanaimo residents with a demonstration of their precision flying.

The Snowbirds Demonstration Team (431 Squadron) is a Canadian icon comprised of serving members of the Canadian Forces. Their pilots and technicians work as a team to bring thrilling performances to the North American public. Serving as Canadian ambassadors, the Snowbirds demonstrate the high level of professionalism, teamwork, excellence, discipline and dedication inherent in the women and men of the Air Force and the Canadian Forces.

The show was in aid of C.H.I.L.D. (Children with Intestinal and Liver Disorders) and volunteers were in the crowd seeking donations and selling souvenirs.
