The Canadian Forces Snowbirds reached Manitoba today as part of their cross-Canada “Operation Inspiration” tour in support of Canadian efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Taking off from Winnipeg at approximately 9:30am, the team entered Brandon skies from the South at about 10:20am and spent about ten minutes circling over the city in their trademark formation. Between word getting around town on Monday evening and the noticeable sound in the skies when they arrived, many Brandon neighbourhood driveways were lined with folks out to take in the sight.
Below are a handful of pictures captured. The team is scheduled to takeoff from Brandon to the West at 1:30pm, though it's unclear how much more of a look folks will get at that time!
