CF Snowbirds Operation Inspiration at London SkyDrive

Canadian Forces Snowbirds Confirm Performance at Airshow London 2021

London, Ontario – June 3, 2021 – Airshow London is extremely excited to announce the addition of the Canadian Forces Snowbirds to an already thrilling list of performers for SkyDrive 2021, Canada’s original drive-in air show, taking place August 27-29 at the London International Airport.

Airshow London is proud to welcome back Canada’s national military demonstration team as they continue last year’s Operation Inspiration, uniting and inspiring Canadians throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Flying under Operation Inspiration will also provide the opportunity to carry on the legacy of Captain Jenn Casey, the Snowbirds Public Affairs Officer, who was pivotal in creating this cross-country tour last year. Both the Snowbirds and CF-18 Demonstration team are honoured to continue this work and Airshow London is honoured to host both teams this August.

The air show itself will offer a rare and exciting line-up of Canadian and American Forces aircraft, headlined by the United States Navy Blue Angels. Additional confirmed performances include the United States Air Force F-16 Viper Demonstration and C-17 Globemaster Demonstration. This year’s added Friday night show will also feature a special flyby from two United States Air Force B-1B Lancers. Airshow London is looking forward to announcing more performers leading up to the show.

“As a proud Canadian air show, we look forward to hosting both our national teams in an effort to continue to unite Canadians through Operation Inspiration. We invite our community to join us, support us and get excited with us, as we get back together in a safe and responsible way,” says Jim Graham, Chair, Airshow London.

This is the second year for Airshow London’s socially responsible and physically distant drive-in format, following last year’s hugely successful sold out event and the only air show to take place in Canada.

Tickets for the show must be purchased in advance and are sold per vehicle for up to 6 passengers. Tickets can be purchased at airshowlondon.com.
