The Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds demonstration team are upping the festivities for the 150th anniversary of Canada’s confederation with a special paint scheme of their own. The new paint on their Canadair CT-114 Tutor features the Canada 150 logo on the nose and wings with the underside of the aircraft featuring 150 crimson maple leaves mixed with the traditional red/white/blue colors of the Snowbirds scheme. Yet again, the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) have outdone themselves with a stunning display of patriotism and creativity.
The first public appearance of the new paint scheme will be Saturday July 1, as the Snowbirds join the similarly beautiful CF-18 Hornet demonstration jet and multiple other aircraft for a mass flyover of Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario as part of the Canada Day festivities. Should you miss that, the Snowbirds are next expected to fly at the Shoal Lake Airshow in Shoal Lake, Manitoba on July 12, followed shortly by the Lethbridge International Airshow in Lethbridge, Alberta.
We look forward to seeing this beautiful aircraft and commemoration on tour throughout the remaining show season!
