The Canadian Forces Snowbirds, a highly skilled precision aerobatics team similar to the Blue Angels, will be performing a flyover of Sault Ste Marie, Ontario on Monday morning at 10:30 am. The flypast is part of Operation Inspiration, which is a cross-country tour the Snowbirds are doing to help boost morale as Canada continues to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. Since last week, the Snowbirds have visited communities in Atlantic Canada, Quebec and parts of Ontario.
The Canadian Forces (CF) Snowbirds, 431 Air Demonstration Squadron are a Canadian icon comprised of Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members and National Defence Public Service employees.
Pilots, technicians (aviation, avionics, aircraft structure, supply), mobile support operators, resource management support clerks, an engineering officer, a logistics officer and a public affairs officer representing all three elements (Army, Navy and Air Force), work as a team to bring thrilling performances to the Canadian public. Serving as ambassadors of the CAF, the CF Snowbirds demonstrate the high level of skill, professionalism, teamwork, discipline and dedication inherent in the men and women of the CAF and they inspire the pursuit of excellence wherever they go in North American.
