The Snowbirds will arrive April 23 in the morning, and the CF-18 will arrive April 27. Both teams will conduct daily training, including weekends, until May 6.
The Snowbirds will fly over and in the vicinity of 19 Wing Comox twice a day between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. every day.
Each of these sessions normally will be followed by a 30-minute CF-18 practice. Member of the public can expect increased aircraft activity for that period throughout the Valley.
The Snowbirds and F-18 team train at 19 Wing Comox each year. With the mountainous terrain, as well as open water nearby, the Comox Valley is an ideal location for the teams to fine-tune their performances.
The Snowbirds and F-18 team and 19 Wing thank the residents of the Comox Valley for their support and understanding over the next two weeks.
