Here’s something that my active brain needs an answer to.
Firstly, let me say that the Snowbird jet on display at the new Visitor Info Centre looks awesome. Full marks and kudos to all who came up with the idea of putting it there.
I drive by the aircraft display at the airport quite often on my way home from work and remember going by one day and noticing the only Snowbird was gone.
I was pleased to learn later what had happened to it. But, when it was at the airport prior to new paint it was Snowbird No. 3. However, the restored jet at the Info Centre is Snowbird No. 5.
Anyone know why?
At the Driftwood Mall there is or was several portrait photographs on display in the hallway to the washrooms. One portrait is of a young cadet standing in front of the Snowbird on display at the airport. The Snowbird was No. 3. Why was it changed to No. 5?
Also I am pleased to see that a Labrador helicopter is on display finally at the airport. Incredible workhorse; it helped save a lot of people in distress.
Love the Snowbirds!
