Canadian Forces Snowbirds Coming to Fort Erie

Media Advisory (March 9, 2017) On May 24, the Canadian Forces Snowbirds will be coming to Fort Erie to perform an aerial display over the Town. Each year, the Snowbirds perform approximately 60 shows at 40 different locations throughout North America between May and October. The performances showcase the precision and skill of the serving members of the Canadian Forces.

In addition to welcoming the Snowbirds, the Town will also be welcoming home Captain Paul Faulkner, Snowbird 11, Advance and Safety Pilot and Team Coordinator. Captain Faulkner was born and raised in Fort Erie; graduating from Fort Erie Secondary School. He was also a cadet with 337 ‘Allan Troup’ Squadron – Fort Erie Air Cadets and began his flying career by receiving his private pilot’s licence through the cadet program.

Planning for the show is well underway and more details will be released soon.

    The term Canadian Forces can still be used, but we prefer to be called Canadian Armed Forces. FYI, I was also born in Fort Erie.

    Robert Sharpe was on the team in the very early days and was born and raised in Fort Erie. His rank may have been Captain..should be easy to confirm and locate.
