It's Canada Day weekend for us Canuck's! In St.Thomas Ontario, the air show was underway. Weather was not looking so good first thing in the morning so I wasn't to sure if I'd be attending or not, but as the afternoon came, the clouds broke up and the sun came out. I couldn't resist, as i'm an airplane fanatic, I had to drive the hour to St.Thomas and see this show. 
I didn't want to pay to go to the show as I had already paid the $30 to go to two other air shows a few weeks before. I found street behind the airport that wasn't surrounded by police kicking everyone off the side of the roads. Luckily enough, the spot I picked was the direct line the planes were using to circle around the airport, so they all flew directly over head, which made for great shots. 
Sitting in the car a heard a scream from some engines and as I looked up, out shot the snowbirds. It was weird because the snowbirds usually end the air show, not start them up, but it was a great new approach, a surprise, and really a great way to start the show.
Anyways, it was a great day, there were a lot of people, the weather held up and it was great to once again smell the jet fuel burning in the air.
