Apparently unhappy with the way the team is performing, the Canadian Air Force Snowbirds are back in Moose Jaw, having cancelled their next nine shows on their summer air show schedule.
A last minute cancellation for a show Wednesday in Rochester, New York prompted questions about the team, to which the Snowbirds responded with a statement on Facebook that said while the team has had several well-executed shows early in the season, the Team Lead has determined that additional training is required before the Snowbirds resume the 2017 schedule. The statement also talked about bad weather forcing the cancellation of a number of practices.
The show Wednesday is part of a list of cancelled shows that include Rhode Island, Ontario, Missouri and Minnesota through the start of June. The team says they will return to the schedule "once we have the consistency required for our dynamic nine-aircraft aerobatic performance."
