The Skyhawks have landed

The RCAF's parachute team the Skyhawks, based at CFB Trenton, Ontario, kicked off their demonstration season today with a show in their home town. They jumped from a CC 130 Hercules which was circling over the town, and landed in front of an appreciative crowd on the football field of the local high school. Trenton is very supportive of the military and they love their local men and women in uniform - it is, after all, the place where Canada's fallen soldiers returned from Afghanistan and were taken down the Highway of Heroes to Toronto.

I was able to watch the show and took a few pictures.
