It is always a highlight of the airshow but the fate of the Snowbird performance at the Canadian National Exhibition Airshow is up in the air.
This comes because the Royal Canadian Air Force has ordered an “operational pause” for its Snowbird air demonstration squadron jets after a crash earlier this month.
According to the Air Force, the jets will not fly until an airworthiness risk assessment can be completed.
One of the jets crashed on August 2nd while landing at Fort St. John B.C.
No one was hurt in that accident but the incident remains under investigation.
