Snowbirds leave CYKF

So I had a review flight this morning, where I worked on some circuits. I'm now up to 15.4 hours dual time. Weather permitting, I'll be going on my first solo this Saturday :D

The bigger news is that I got to see a lot of Snowbird action today. Today was the day that the RCAF Snowbirds were leaving CYKF after the Waterloo Airshow this past weekend. While I was doing my walk-around, I got to see Snowbirds 1, 2 and 3 depart from runway 08 at CYKF. As I was heading to the washroom before my flight, I got to have a short conversation with a Snowbird pilot and Aviation Technician.

After I landed from my flight, I heard multiple Snowbirds on the ground frequency and got to watch them leave on Runway 08. As I left the airport, the only Snowbird remaining was Snowbird number 10.

So, if all goes well next Saturday, my next post here will be about my first solo :D Wish me luck!
