The Saskatchewan Air show 2004

FTLComm - Moose Jaw - Monday, June 14, 2004 Images by: Matthew Shire

The pilgrimage to the Saskatchewan Air show is a family tradition with us having been there at the first one and since then made an effort when ever possible. We have taken students to it in a school bus, driven many times and once attended with our own plane. This year it was Matthew who made the trip and has sent along his pictures that chronicle the day.

The first order of business every year is the weather and this year was a wet one with steady rain in the morning and only light rain when it was time to light the fires and do the show at 1:00.

Most air shows are two or more days but the show at Moose Jaw is a tight one day show with lots of heavy military metal on hand each year.

Besides commercial and military displays the Saskatchewan Air show has a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere and this year the rain made it even more so.

After the opener there were some private air show pilots with their souped up machine to churn of the clouded sky, but as always the show ends with the home team, the Snowbirds who can bring everyone to their feet clouds or no clouds as their precise flying and slick order, stand out as the best such team you will ever see.
