The 2002 Leamington "Airshow", which was mainly/totally to consist of a Snowbirds performance was scheduled to take place over the shore of Lake Erie in the South-Western Ontario town of Leamington (about 20 km SE of YQG) on Victoria Day (May 20th). But thanks to the efforts of OBL & Co., the show was cancelled due to the town being unable to afford the insurance costs.

However, Leamington residents were in for a surprise yesterday, as the RCAF aerobatic team just happened to "practice" in the exact same time, date, and location of the cancelled airshow. The appearance was un-announced, however, due to legal reasons. The team also visited Windsor airport (YQG) prior to the show (if I knew they'd be here, I would have gone, of course). That was mighty nice of the Snowbirds, too bad it couldn't work with those cancelled airshows that were to take place in actual airports.

That's good to hear, after all the depressing airshow news lately.
