Snowbirds fly over of Waterloo region and Guelph Sunday afternoon

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds flew over parts of Waterloo region, Wellington County and Guelph Sunday afternoon.

The Snowbirds were initially scheduled to fly over the area on Saturday, but snow and hail kept the planes grounded in Trenton.

The route for Sunday sees the Snowbirds leave Trenton around 9:30 a.m. and land in Toronto an hour later. Then they’ll leave Toronto at 12:45 p.m and fly to London.

The schedule has the Snowbirds leaving London at 4:15 p.m., heading north to Stratford, then going east over Kitchener and Guelph before going north to Collingwood and finally landing in Barrie at about 5:15 p.m.

Actual times could vary and the Snowbirds tell people to monitor their social media accounts.

The tour of Canada has been dubbed “Operation Inspiration” and is a way to boost morale during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Snowbirds Facebook page asks people not to travel to see the air demonstration team and instead “observe the flyovers from the safety of their home.”

In the wake of a mass shooting and a helicopter crash that claimed the lives of six military members, the flyover had special meaning to some Nova Scotians. 2:08
