The Snowbirds in Flight, producing aerodynamic shaped patterns on the blue sky of Ottawa, Canada.
A few years ago I had the chance to watch and of course photograph this fantastic acrobatic flight demonstration by the Royal Canadian Air Force.
The Snowbirds in Flight
It was amazing to see the tremendous energy and the precision they had at that speed in the air…
As a former pilot, my husband was simply delighted to see them.
To me it was not only about the technical skills of these so courageous performers – what impressed me most was the whole artistic show they put on, like an aerial ballet…
The fact that the blue sky was partially covered with big cumulus clouds made everything even more interesting, and the Snowbirds in Flight were simply amazing!
I have a good telephoto, but still I had to crop the images a little to show the airplanes closer. They are all available as art prints in my Fine Art America collection, and they look nice as prints on the wall, but I think that these photos look better together…
That’s why I decided to make them into poster like collages. If you are a proud Canadian and want these images on your wall or as any another kind of print, click on any of them to see all the options. Here are the Snowbirds in Flight ready for your wall:

Wonderful photos! The first one is particularly stunning. Thanks for joining the challenge!
Thank you Nancy 🙂
wow I’m not even Canadian but this is stupendous! Their skill and precision, then your ability to capture it … congratulations you have real talent!
Thank you 🙂
Am in awe!! Amazing shots!
Love the shots of their aerial dance, especially the last one that almost made a circle
The collages look fantastic. It is an artistic as well as highly skilled display. Very impressive, my telephoto only goes to 250 so I’d be lost.
Oh my goodness, I just love watching planes do amazing stunts and admire their bravery to do so. Thanks for posting these wonderful photos.
These are amazing photos! Incredible precision by the RCAF, but also beautiful skies.
Thank you Peter – oh, I know – they were amazing!
Thank you so much!
Wonderful photos of these jets 😀
