Canadian Forces Snowbirds returning to Quesnel SkyFest

The Snowbirds are known for their world-class precision aerobatics and jaw-dropping solo crosses

We are so excited to announce that the Canadian Forces Snowbirds will be in Quesnel this summer!

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds (431 Air Demonstration Squadron) are a national icon, known for their world-class precision aerobatics and jaw-dropping solo crosses.

As ambassadors of the Canadian Forces, they have proudly flown the Canadian flag over every major air show in North America, as well as at the Olympics and Commonwealth Games.

The Snowbirds spend their winter months in Moose Jaw, Sask., under intense training to acquire the skills they need to perform in incredibly demanding positions.

In formation, the Canadian Forces Snowbirds fly their signature Canadair CT-114 Tutors at speeds of up to 590 kilometres per hour with only four feet between their wings, and their stunning solo passes occur at nearly the speed of sound!

Witnessing the Snowbirds in action is an experience unlike anything else. See for yourself at SkyFest 2019!

SkyFest returns to Quesnel Aug. 2, 3, and 4 at the Quesnel Regional Airport!
