The Canadian Forces Snowbirds will take to the sky over the National Capital Region in an attempt to lift spirits Thursday afternoon.

The CF Snowbirds will head toward the city from Cornwall at 4:30 p.m. and land in Gatineau at 5:15 p.m.

The Snowbirds are flying the tour for Operation INSPIRATION, which began this weekend on the East Coast and is meant to inspire and salute Canadians working on the front lines against the spread of COVID-19.

Once they're in the region, they should circle once before coming in for a landing. They then headed south, so their signature white smoke trails could be seen by folks in Drummondville, Granby, and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, before landing at the Montreal airport around 1:45 p.m.

Nevertheless, the Snowbirds said that flight schedules are subject to change and will be announced on their Facebook and Twitter accounts.

"Through Operation Inspiration, we not only want to salute the front-line health-care workers, first responders, and essential workers, but also all Canadians doing their part to stop the spread of COVID-19", he added.

On April 29, the Royal Canadian Airforce explained, "Flyovers will occur at an elevation no lower than 500 feet above all obstacles".
