Snowbirds set to fly over London region Sunday afternoon

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds will be flying over the London region Sunday afternoon as part of a tour aimed at boosting morale during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

While the Snowbirds were intially set to fly over the area on Saturday, snow and hail kept the planes grounded in Trenton.

Londoners wanting to see the Snowbirds’ tour of Canada will be able to do so a bit before 1:45 p.m. Sunday when they land in London and again at around 4:15 p.m. when they take off.

Sunday’s route began at 9:30 a.m. when the Snowbirds took off from Trenton and flew to Toronto. They’re set to take off again at 12:45 p.m and then fly over Woodstock and Ingersoll before landing in London.

The Snowbirds are scheduled to leave 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 are asking people to monitor their social media accounts.

The Snowbirds are encouraging people not to travel to see the air demonstration team, but rather “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
