Canadian International Air Show now with Thunderbirds

@CIASToronto 2018 is bringing the United States Air Force Thunderbirds to the 69th annual air show during the Canadian National Exhibition. The end of summer Labour Day long holiday weekend aerial extravaganza happens September 1-3 and will also see some top notch flying talent take to the skies over Toronto.

Before the Saturday to Monday show the planes will start showing up over Toronto starting on Friday when some of the planes will take to the sky to practice as they prepare for the amazing show that happens every year during the end of the CNE.
The Thunderbirds' Toronto performance will happen 15 years after their last performance at the CIAS and will be their only show outside the USA this year. Canada's own Snowbirds will also be returning as well.  "Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command), the show is a shining example of a 60 year old history of USA and Canadian cooperation."
Here are the confirmed planes and more are to follow.
