I am actually surprised that the Canadians were able to fly their Sopwith Camels that far to penasacola.:-)

Mind you, Canada is spelled L-I-B-E-R-A-L.

While of course I salute the barbs generated towards our northern friends, anyone that bad mouths the flying ability or danger associated with the Snowbirds doesn't have a clue. Having watched them fly dozens of times, I can attest to the very difficult routine they fly, especially with an underpowered, very old jet.

And, having flown in the right seat of the number 4 jet (the slot) during a practice flight, I can assure you these pilots are good, DAMN good. And you haven't lived until you've been in a nine ship landing!
