431 Air Demonstration Squadron, better known as the Snowbirds, will be taking to the skies over Canadian cities once again this year.

They'll be over Vancouver and the Lower Mainland three times with all dates happening in July and August.

The first will be a non-aerobatic display over Vancouver on Friday, July 16. It replaces a previously scheduled flight over Boundary Bay that was set for July 17.

A couple of days later, on Sunday, July 18, they'll be doing an aerobatic display over White Rock.

Then, they'll return to the region for the Abbotsford International Airshow from August 6 to 8.

Currently, those are the only three appearances they have in B.C. There's only one other event in western Canada; they'll be performing over Calgary July 24 and 25.

In total, the Snowbirds have 19 dates with the majority in eastern Canada and a handful in the U.S.

In a tweet, the team notes things still could change depending on the pandemic.

The team has been training on Vancouver Island recently, following last year's deadly crash in Kamloops.
