Usaf B-52 Stratofortress Over YYZ

Sun Sep 04, 2005 3:05 am

Hi folks,
It seems USAF B-52 Stratofortress is currently encircling the sky over Toronto, and Scarborough in particular. Just watched from my binoculars.

If my memory is correct the big air show over the lake at YYZ is this weekend so I would guess that the B-52 is taking part in the airshow.

Nothing to worry about. Its the Canadian airshow in YYZ. You will see all kinds of wierd planes today. Migs, F16, B52, C130

LOL!

So it was a B-52! I'd just finished a 2 week driving holiday around Canada with a little last minute shopping at Eaton Place on Yonge in downtown Toronto... heard this almighty roar and turned just in time to see the BUFF appear from behind one building and disappear behind the next.

I did think it was odd that a BUFF was circling over lake Ontario that low but figured it was probably an airshow.

Damn... wish I'd known there was a show on... I'd have stayed an extra day!

Hope it was a good one!

Cheers!
