This year’s Borden Canadian Forces Day and Air Show commemorated the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the 68th Anniversary of D-Day. CFB Borden is located just south-west of Barrie about one hour north of Toronto. The Canadian Forces were represented by the pre-eminent Canadian Forces Snowbirds Demonstration Team, the Canadian Forces Parachute team – SkyHawks the CF-18 Hornet Demonstration Team, and the CP-140 Aurora Maritime Patrol Aircraft.
Canadian Forces Day and Air Show at Borden CFB was an excellent event. For the price of $10 we had a full day event two hangars full of military display from today and yesterday, fire crew demonstrations, kids play ground all the military vehicle was accessible to the public. Very helpful and friendly staff, There were lots of food venders sponsors booth, plenty of sanitation facilities. A very good viewing area of the air show but one required a telephoto or zoom lens of 300mm or larger. It was an excellent event for the family.
