Snowbirds Perform Mid-Air Stunts

MAY 10, 2006 -- There were birds of a different feather flying above Wilmington's airport Wednesday morning.

The Canadian Air Forces' Snowbirds dazzled people with their mid-air stunts. This the third year the elite group has performed in Wilmington.

The pilots have been showing off their skills since 1971 and are similar to the Thunderbirds and Blue Angels in the U.S.

The 85-member squadron travels all over North America and will appear at the New River Air Show in Jacksonville this weekend.
