The Canadian Snowbirds. The elite of the fighter pilots. The ones that are allowed to do acrobatics in their planes where normal jet fighters are supposed to go by the book. When we speak of the Snowbirds, everyone is in awe. People watching a show with the Snowbirds invariably will fire up the Top Gun theme in their cars.
Twenty years after the movie it is still going strong as a theme… The Canadian Forces Snowbirds (431 Air Demonstration Squadron) is a Canadian icon comprised of serving members of the Canadian Armed Forces.
