BRUNSWICK — The Royal Canadian Air Forces Snowbirds will headline JLC Airshow Management’s inaugural Wings Over the Golden Isles Air Show at Brunswick-Golden Isles Airport on Oct. 8 and 9.
The show will be the Snowbirds final road show of their 45th anniversary season. The Snowbirds perform in Canadian-built C-114 Tutors jets, which provide an individual thrust of 2,700 pounds. During an airshow, guests see the squadron perform with seven or nine jets in a close formation flight demonstration.
"The Snowbirds’ show is the result of six months of intensive preparation and training and consists of over 50 different formations and maneuvers," Snowbirds public affairs officer Lt. Patricia Brunelle said.
Having flown over 2,500 airshow performances, the team traditionally flies at an average speed of 400 knots with less than two meters of separation between their aircraft.
After Saturday’s air performances, the day continues with an outdoor concert featuring headliners .38 Special.
The air show will also feature performances by the F/A 18 Hornet Demo Team, Sky Soldiers AH-1F Cobra Demonstration Team, U.S. Special Operations Command Para-Commandos skydiving demonstration team, Aerobatic champions Rob Holland and Patty Wagstaff, Buck Roetman, Kent Pietsch, and Bill Braack’s Jet Car.
