I love Creston - February/March 2022 - Golden Centennaires

1967 marked the 100th anniversary of the creation of Canada as a nation. To celebrate this momentous occasion, the Royal Canadian Air Force set up an aerobatic team, which was to perform at 100 air demonstrations across the country. The team was known as the “Golden Centennaires” and primarily flew a formation of nine gold and blue CT-114 Tutor jets. Although the Golden Centennaires were disbanded after doing 121 shows in North America (including the Bahamas for two shows), the Golden Centennaires are regarded as being the precursor of today’s Royal Canadian Armed Forces display team, the “Snowbirds” who have now been captivating North American audiences for 48 consecutive years!
