Toronto Airshow – A Taster

The Labour Day Weekend is also the weekend of the Toronto Airshow, and so on Sunday we headed across the water on the water-taxi to the Toronto Islands, with a few of our friends, for a ringside view of the proceedings from the beach near Hanlan’s Point.

The weather was gorgeous – hot, clear, blue skies, windless – people were bobbing about in the water, there was a line of yachts and other vessels strung out along the horizon, and the shoreline from Mississauga into the city formed a perfect backdrop for the fly-pasts and aerobatics.

Here are two images, as a taster: one of them, a photo of the Breitling aerobatic team, is offered twice, in colour and in black-and-white. I happen to like both, for different reasons. The second photo is a close-up of Canada’s Snowbirds in tight formation.
