    think it was the snowbirds. in formation about 7 or 8 of them.
    single jet, straight wings.

    I actually prefer the prop jobs to the fast movers, you get to see them longer.

    The planes are Canadair CT-114 Tutors. This was the RCAF's jet trainer for many years but are now used only by the Snowbirds and for experimental work.
