Canadian International Air Show

There was some good flying around the Toronto Harbour during the 2009 Toronto Air Show CIAS. My favourites were the WWII mustangs and the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.

Watching the show from the beaches of Hanlan's Point on the Toronto Islands provided a great view and some refreshing water to keep us cool during the perfect long weekend weather. Hanlan's Point beach is also famous for being Toronto's nude sunbathing beach - so clothes are optional at this site. Here I am just before I got naked (just kidding, photo by Joe).

The Blue Angels put on a great show and it was nice to see them up in Canada.

The Blue Angels fly past the CN Tower.

While their support aircraft named Fat Albert, shown below, also appears in the show. Here they fly just outside of the beach heading towards the Toronto shoreline passing all the boats lined up to watch the show.

A Spitfire comes in for a landing at Toronto's Island Airport while the Canadian National Exhibition amusement rides are in the background.
