This may be wishful thinking based on the forecast for Monday but I'm sure hoping the weather holds off for both Sunday & Monday.

The team has left the US on their way back home! They will perform today at the Wings Over Gatineau show in Canada (see the Aero 150 thread of the live stream) and perform a joint flight with the Canadian Snowbirds tomorrow.

Cancelled today due to the weather & they announced they'd try again tomorrow which just might be possible. The current weather is not good & we have lots of flooding in the area but it may let up for a while tomorrow in the late morning.
