Oct. 20, 2009 – The Canadian Snowbirds Demonstration Team landed at the Jamestown airport Monday to fuel up on its way back to Moose Jaw, Sask.
 
Jon Cave owns the First Class Aviation Inc., in Jamestown. He says 11 red, white and blue CT-114 Tutor planes took turns fueling up.

Among other aerial acrobatics, the flight team is known for its "big diamond" formation with nine planes flying close together in the shape of a diamond.

Cpl. Mike Decker, one of the group's technicians, said the Snowbirds were on their way home after an air show in Virginia.

He said the group performs at more than 60 shows in the U.S. and Canada from June to the end of October.
