The Snowbirds' spring training dates have been announced.

The Snowbirds are coming

Annual spring training stint in the Comox Valley just around the corner

  • Mar. 11, 2015 7:00 p.m.

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds will, once again, grace the skies over the Comox Valley in preparation for their 2015 air show season from April 10th to 30th.

The Snowbirds’ Spring Training Camp is an annual event that affords the team the opportunity to practice flying over water, mountains and diverse terrain away from its operational home base of Moose Jaw, SK.

“The team is always excited for our annual Spring Training Camp here in Comox,” said Lieutenant Colonel Christopher England, Commanding Officer of 431 Air Demonstration Squadron.  “This is our home away from home and we feel so welcomed and appreciated by the community year after year.”

During their three week tenure at 19 Wing Comox, the Snowbirds will practice twice daily, weather permitting. Details of exact timings and location will be announced upon the team’s arrival in April.

The Snowbirds will also fly their official acceptance show, April 28, over the Comox Waterfront and will be available thereafter to sign autographs at the Air Force Museum, 19 Wing, Comox (timings are to be announced).
