This is a nice shot David. Perfect composition and attractive contrast of
The lens shows its limitations wide open though - a careful comparison center /
outer aircraft demonstrates a variation in sharpness which modern lenses no
longer display, I think.
But taken with the equipment available at the time, this is a super shot :-)

Here, north of the 49th, a "Snowbird" is someone who "fly's south" to
Arizona, Texas, So.Cal. or Mexico for a half a year, to escape Canada's
famous winter weather.
OTOH, "The Snowbirds" are the Canadian Forces Air Demonstration Squadron.
The team flies 11 CT-114 Tutors - nine for aerobatic performances, including
two solo aircraft, and two as spares (flown by the team support personnel).
Typical of Canuck resourcefulness, the Snowbirds are the world's only major
military aerobatics team to operate without a support aircraft.
Taken at the Abbotsford Air Show, back in 2005, and cropped to 16:9 from a
full width, to eliminate excess sky. Otherwise, FF.
