Snowbirds scrap Saturday flyover in southern Ontario due to weather
'We said SnowBIRDS not SNOW!' the Snowbirds joked in a tweet
Poor visibility from winter-like weather has put a halt on the Snowbirds aerobatics team's plans to fly over southern Ontario on Saturday.
The team's Twitter account said Saturday morning that due to snow and hail in and around Toronto, the Snowbirds planned to hold at 8 Wing/Canadian Forces Base Trenton for 24 hours.
"We said SnowBIRDS not SNOW!" the Snowbirds joked in a tweet.
The Snowbirds have been doing a cross-country salute to Canadians helping fight the spread of COVID-19 since last weekend, starting in Nova Scotia.
Their Operation Inspiration features the team's signature nine-jet formation.
The Snowbirds encourage Canadians to observe the flyovers from the safety of their home and refrain from travelling to see the show.
