2013 cal cap airshow 100513 827 ec

THE SNOWBIRDS Demonstration Team 431 Squadron is made up of serving members of the Canadian Forces. While they have been in existence since 1942, it wasn’t until July of 1971 that they gave their first public performance. For 2013, their theme is “The pursuit of Excellence,” commemorating two milestones: 70 years as a squadron and 50 years flying the same jet, a Canadian CT-114 Tutor, an advanced jet trainer.
