This is my 3rd year at the show and knock on wood it has never rained out in all 3 years I have been there.
As much as I like the Olympus E-M5, the AF is not really designed for tracking jets flying just under the speed of sound. For the flying shots I got out the old trusty D2x.

Not to be outdone by the air force, the army guys also put on a show for the crowds
The Army came prepared with their own photographers on the ground and in the air
The Mako Shark made an appearance in the skies over Waterloo.
But it wasn't all jets at the airshow, the Canadian Harvard Formation Team dropped in as well
The Vintage Wings of Canada's Corsair flew in as well.
From London Ontario, Pete McLeod showed us what his Edge 540 could do.
The only foreign act - Otto the Helicopter.
A great CanCon show, the CRTC would be proud. Missing in the above images were the Canadian Snowbirds and Wayne Hadath's F-1 Rocket.
