#Toronto Airshow 2013

School is back, the CNE is winding down with the Canadian International Airshow (CIAS), and Labour Day spells the end of summer! While beautiful fall colours will soon fill the forests of Ontario, the advancing calendar can only mean winter is coming. Doom and gloom. Today's weather forecast calls for cloudy skies and rain in the afternoon so hopefully they made a mistake and the day will turn out just perfect for a staycation by the lake. Grab your chairs and sunscreen and be ready for start of the Saturday, August 31 to Monday, September 2, 2013 64th annual Toronto Airshow. Catch all the action down by Lake Shore Blvd and the CNE from 1:00 to 4:30 pm. The Red Baron looks like he has the drop on the allied biplane in the phot at top.

You have seen the modern military jets keeping their afterburners off, you have seen the propeller driven birds waiting to be released, today you can see all the action in the air. Here are some photos from the practice held Friday afternoon.
