Canadair CT-114 Tutor (Snowbirds)

@ Sacramento Mather Airport, Sacramento, CA

October 2013

With the hosed-up 2013 airshow season, thanks to sequestration, about the only military team seen at US airshows were the Canadian Snowbirds.  The organizers of the California Capital Airshow managed to get the Snowbirds plus the Patriots jet team.  The Canadian designed and built Tutors have been in the Canadian Forces inventory since 1963 and have been used by the Snowbirds team since 1971.   The Snowbirds fleet of CT-114 Tutors will be retired by December 2020.
