Snow bird pilots have come back to Comox, BC Canada to practice. I watched their first performance and it is clear that they are performing at a very precise and dangerous expert level. Nine jets fly in tight formation and every second must be measured....or else! And this is just the start of two weeks training. Boggles the mind. Canadians trying to be the world's best, probably.
