A new CIAS pilot gets a honour spray from an airport fire truckCanadian International Air Show has been a source of awe and inspiration in satisfying the marvel of flight for millions of enthusiasts annually. The sounds of the past and present will again transform the skies over Toronto as we welcome the 66th annual Canadian International Air Show to the shores of Lake Ontario. The 2015 Canadian International Air Show promises to have something for everyone." The Canadian Forces Snowbirds, first appearing at the show in 1972, will return with their precision aerobatic team performance during the annual Canadian National Exhibition (CNE).
Fighter planes like the vintage WWII Sptifire and P-51 Mustang warbirds will be joined by modern jets such as the CF-18 Hornet and the Air Combat Command F-16 Demonstration Team throughout the September 5-7, 2015 program. A United States Heritage Flight will feature the F-16 and P-51 flying together over Lake Ontario.

News crews setup their cameras at a safe distance on Adelaide Street West
The measures were taken in the morning of Monday, August 31, 2015 after reports of possible danger due to the conditions of an antenna at the 325 Bay Street tower. The streets were still taped off and watched over by police during the afternoon commute. Reports suggest that hotel staff saw the tower swaying in the wind, much like Trump's hair when he gets near his helicopter.
If you wave your head back and forth you can recreate the tower of terror effect
"Toronto Building contacted and issued an order to the property management company in charge of and responsible for the building to provide a professional engineer's report commenting on the safety of the antenna and related building elements. The City is awaiting a response to the issued order. To protect public safety, the roads will remain closed, and at this time it is anticipated that a response to the issued order will not be received until tomorrow."

Sail-in Cinema where you don't need the boat, the screen floats to you at Sugar Beach, or more movies in Christie Pitts, the street festivals such as the Big on Bloor Festival and the Taste of Manila Festival. Several of our festivals require street closures and while the Pan Am HOV lanes are gone (for now) the Gardiner has been reduced to two lanes each way, so in summary; Toronto road construction will impact travel your travel plans - so plan ahead. We are also in the middle of Toronto Men's Fashion Week (TOM)
Chinatown Festival on Spadina has plenty of interesting events and attractions. Plus experience other cultures with Iranian arts and cultural TIRGAN Festival and the Scarborough Afro-Carib Festival.

This year's show features some of the most well-known warbirds to ever take to the sky, such as the de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito and Focke-Wulf FW-190. The de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito is a British multi-role combat aircraft with a two-man crew that served during and after WWII. The Focke-Wulf FW-190 is a German single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft designed by Kurt Tank in the late 1930s."
