A Snowbird flyby. I heard the roar, and by the time I had the camera out and was on the balcony, they were already over the city.

...I was ready for the second pass, though!

From their website: "The distance between each Snowbird jet in many of the formations is about 1.2 metres (4 feet)"

No kidding: "When flying at speeds of 600 km/hr a large amount of skill is required by the pilot to maintain this distance throughout the performance."

The red jets are training aircraft, the grey jet is not. (It's a CF-18 fighter)

And away they went...
