I do like the Tutor in that I believe it is more agile and versatile for this use. Obviously though, they will need newer planes at some point. However, I really hope they leave the number on the team at nine.

About 15 years ago, I was doing touch and go's for my pilots license when the tower told us to either land or leave the airspace.
Still having over an hour left on the plane, we put down and grabbed a soda.
Next thing we know, the Snowbirds are 50' overhead in a tight diamond formation - got an up close and personal airshow for free.

Scrap the Snowbirds. Canada can't afford them... not on its pathetic defense budget. Use the funds to replace the "Sea Things" that keep crashing.

Blue Angels used to fly A4 Skyhawks. There may be some of them left around. They're incredibly agile.

Those planes remind me of the failed Fairchild trainers that the Air Force was considering in the early-mid '80s.

And Canada could acquire them with a little effort and diplomacy.
