For 40 minutes on Aug. 14, Prince Rupert’s eyes were on the skies as the Canadian Forces Snowbirds brought their precision flying to the North Coast.

Mixing solo flights with seven and nine-plane formations, the Snowbirds put on a show that included tributes to the history of the Canadian forces, the history of the Snowbirds and honoured the men and women who lost their life serving the country. Mariner’s Park, Rotary Waterfront Park and the top parking lot of the Rupert Square Mall were all packed with people, who have been waiting for the Snowbirds return since weather forced the cancellation of the show in August, 2011.
