Air show Oct. 1 in Douglas, Arizona from air-show « WordPress.com Tag Feed by tourcochisecounty

Save the date! I just heard that there's going to be another free air show in Douglas. In March, their Border to Border air show was a fun day of pilots doing acrobatics.

In October, the Canadian Snowbirds will come to Douglas to perform. it's a great excuse to take a vacation day from work (it's on a Wednesday) and see some cool stuff! From their Web site:

The Snowbirds Demonstration Team is a Canadian icon. It's comprised of serving members of the Canadian Forces. Their pilots and technicians work as a team to bring thrilling performances to the public. As Canadian ambassadors, the Snowbirds demonstrate the high level of professionalism, teamwork, excellence, discipline and dedication inherent in the women and men of the Air Force and the Canadian Forces.

Here are graphics of some of the formations they do. Pretty cool when you think about the speed they fly and how close they are to each other. If you think it's tough not to bump into people when line dancing, imagine controlling an airplane at 115-370 mph!

I don't know the time of the show just yet, but it should be worth the trip. Check back for more info!
