What: The annual Canadian International Air Show
Where: Just west of CNE grounds
When: September 1st thru 3rd (Labour Day Weekend). Show starts at 1pm, but show-up at 12pm to secure location
Bring: Most likely your telephoto lens.
Cost: None
Additional Info:

A placeholder for the annual CNE air show. Last year I posted three seperate events, but I figure I'm only going to show to one this year.

Update: Stealing Eddie's map again:

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=214 ... 7466&msa=0

Generally we pick a spot just to the West of the VIP area along the Lakeshore.
If driving down, there is a parking lot further west along the Lakeshore. It should be free during the day, but it fills up quickly.

Mawz and I have gone there for the past two years, and mawz has probably done it in years prior too.

The fire ants are insane.

I've been waiting to hear about any updates from the Air Show mailing list, but not much change.

I'm still unsure about which day I will be showing up myself as I suddenly have family coming in from out of town this weekend.

I'll keep posting updates. The Air Show mailing list usually sends out the daily timetables the day before.

We go to Hanlans for this every year...but I'll be there with Critters in tow and I think my SIL..Her 2 kids..FIL..and MIL are all going with us.
I'll bring my camera, no fancy giant lens like the ones I often see (and am jealous of) but hope I get some decent shots. I really dont care for planes...BUT the Hornet...I have to go just to see it! Hopefully the weather is better then last year!

I'll probably get more shots of my 2 year old eating dirt while daddy chases him down the beach.

The wasps were bad last year too

@Simon,

Couldn't find anything on the air show website. Could only find scanner frequencies from last year:
http://www.canairradio.com/airshow.html

We were near someone with a scanner one year and it was a good idea.

Weather forecasts favouring saturday...

I hunted around to see if I could rent a 500mm for the weekend but I couldnt find much. I also dont know which would work with my camera besides the same brand lenses (Sony) . I do have a 18-250mm, hopefully it'll do :)

Looks like i've chosen the saturday to go myself. It also looks like the remnants of Isaac may actually hold off this weekend.

The CIAS mailing list will be sending out the daily schedules each morning. I'll update the post as i get them.

No F-16. No Griffon either. They didn't really follow the schedule.

I had a heck of a time trying to find parking, but made it eventually. Thanks to Yesh for showing up the first day.

I don't plan to attend again, but I will post the schedule (subject to change) when I get them in the morning. Feel free to use the registration to let others know who will be there.

With no static display, this airshow is getting pretty pathetic and they still want to charge over $1500.00 for their” Ultimate Air Show Experience” (tent & fence) next to the public area.
I think tomorrow will be my last visit. I’m planning to go to Miramar next year (http://www.miramarairshow.com/performers.html). At least I can pack in an airshow and a visit to San Diego zoo with a side trip to LA. I may post it as a potential TPMG event.

I guess i didn't post the schedule this morning. That's 'cause I didn't actually get the schedule this morning. I hope everyone who went today had a good time.
