Sneak peek at @TorontoAirshow 2013 jets

Media day at #Toronto Pearson Airport was a chance to see some of the modern military jets that will take part in the CNE's 64th annual extravaganza in the sky. The Canadian International Airshow (CIAS) aircraft on view today were the L39, a Sea Harrier, Red Star and Dragon and a Canadian Forces CF18 jet fighter team. The CF18 pictured above is a first time performer to the show and it received the customary water blast from the pair of fire trucks as a welcome to the airport.

Tomorrow I will check out some more of the aircraft at the Toronto Island Airport and catch some of the Friday, August 30 practice. The regular show begins Saturday, August 31 and will continue until Labour Day - Monday, September 2.
Red Star and Dragon - the paint schemes on these aircraft are amazing. These planes will dogfight during the show
