Monday Air Show: Look Up In The Skies And Wave Goodbye To Speedy!
|Jacques Bothelin (nicknamed “Speedy")|
After 15-years of performing in North America Breitling's 7, L-39 Albatros jets will be waving good-bye to Canada today over the skies of Toronto at the Canadian International Air Show. The Aero L-39 Albatros is a high-performance jet trainer aircraft developed in Czechoslovakia by Aero Vodochody. The jet is still in production and there are over 2,000 jets in service around the world!

I caught up with Speedy at a media preview for the @CIAS2016 out at the Pearson Airport. I didn't get a ride but Global TV's Susan Hay did! Photographer George Socka snapped this picture of Susan after she climbed out of Breitling Albatros.atross.
