Toronto's CIAS 2018 Air Show

The Canadian National Exhibition's aerial show comes to the skies just outside the inner harbour of Lake Ontario, to the west of Ontario Place. Starting Saturday, September 1 and finishing on the Labour Day Monday from noon-3pm daily the show features some of the best acrobatic talent in the world.

Centre stage is actually a City of Toronto fire and rescue boat which started up their flames of water at about 11:30am. First up is USAF Thunderbirds which have a great colour scheme.

Another fantastic CIAS show. They are asking people to post pictures with #cias and #lovethenoise hashtags in support of the air show.

See more photos after the jump.
