Air Show 2018

The Air Show is on in Summerside this weekend and our house is on the flight path for some of the jets. It is a challenge to capture them in flight but my husband and I had some success. We love the Snowbirds especially, Tutor jets.








                                         There are six Snowbirds in this photo.




This Vampire jet did a solo acrobatic performance too.



Some of these photos were taken during practice on Friday when the smoke from the wildfires on the west coast of Canada was carried in the jet stream across the country to Prince Edward Island and the rest of eastern Canada.

Saturday the smoke was not as significant overhead but closer to the horizon.

Wow! Great pics

DJan said...

Wow, Marie, these are great pictures! I'm glad the air cleared for you, at least for now. We are all in the same boat, it seems.

Celia said...

Quite a show.

It's always fun to watch the Snowbirds perform!

It is quite a thing to see the Snowbirds. I have seen them twice.

Joanne Noragon said...

Wonderful pictures.

How on earth do they fly so close without accidents? We have the Red Arrows who do the same sort of formation flying here. Nice to have a free show over your house.

What an air show, they are very entertaining to see. Nice photos, Marie!

'some success' is a SERIOUS underestimate. The pair of you got some truly wonderful photos.

I agree with Elephant's Child - those are amazing!

Barbara said...

What fun. Air shows never cease to amaze me. I think I like watching them more than flying in them but they're one of life's little Necessities sometimes

Mage said...

Great shots too. Bravo.

Catarina said...

That is quite a show. I would like to see the air show Labour Day weekend. Not easy to go downtown at that time. Thousands and thousands of people...

Jenn said...

Those are great photos!! Crazy that the smoke has reached so far.

Marie Smith said...

It’s perfect AC.

It was a great show Celia.

Marie Smith said...

Love the Snowbirds, Debra.

Thank you Kees.

Marie Smith said...

Thanks SW. Lots of photos taken to get a few good shots.

Marie Smith said...

We never tire of them William.

Marie Smith said...

Thank you Joanne.

Marie Smith said...

These pilots must have nerves of steel John. They are meters apart! You have to have faith in your team mates for sure.

Marie Smith said...

Thanks Bill. It was a great show seen from the balcony.

Marie Smith said...

We took hundreds of photos to get these few good ones EC. Fun too.

Marie Smith said...

Thanks Jenny.

Marie Smith said...

I haven’t flown in over four years now. I just don’t feel inclined to travel that way these days, Barbara.

Marie Smith said...

Thanks Mage.

Marie Smith said...

Hope the Snowbirds are there Catarina. They are worth the effort.

Marie Smith said...

The smoke has cleared it appears Jenn. It is a bit cooler. Maybe it will be back with the heat later this week.
