2006 Air Shows

Toronto International Air Show CNE 2006

Location: South of the Canadian National Exhibition grounds on the waterfront west of Ontario Place.
Admission: Included with the CNE admission, but can be viewed for free from the lake front shore line parks, in the "spectator" area, however, no washroom facilities provided in the free section.
Parking: At the CNE or directly at the lakeshore parks $20.00. While public transport (TTC) is available to the CNE, none exists to the free areas. 1/2 to 1 mile walk from and to public transit each way.
Value: Good.
The air-box corridor for the air show, is on the waterfront. While it is safe for the spectators, but for viewing or for photographing the air show performers, it is far from ideal.

The weather was terrible, raining on and off, mostly on for all there days. If one was photographing the air show, it was very difficult to take a decent photo due to dark gray clouds and the rain. Yet, it was more ideal even under these bad conditions than when the sun is out and shining. As if one is taking photos over Lake Ontario, the sun would be facing the lens during the air show. Taking photographs into the bright sunshine is worse than taking photos on a very dark, cloudy and drizzly day.

Not all the aircraft flew on all three days either which was a disappointment. Some of the participants were:

  • B-1 Lancer,bomber
  • B-25 Mitchell
  • CP-140 Aurora
  • T6 Harvards
  • F-15 Eagle
  • F-16 Fighting Falcon
  • F-22 Raptor
  • F-86 Sabre
  • CF-18 Hornet
  • The Snowbirds
Rating: 7 out of 10, due to weather conditions.
 
The show highlight was the Heritage flight of the USAF. The F-86 Sabre was flanked by a F-15 and a F-16. The aircraft which flew in such a bad weather still put up a great show!
