Snowbirds will be busy training over Comox Valley

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds and CF-18 demonstration team will begin preparations for the 2012 air show season when they arrive Monday to finalize their annual training.
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.
