People across the country have been loving the displays, many saying the sightings are creating happy memories during these dark times.
Thank you @CFSnowbirds, that was incredible. Right over my house! Pardon my gasping but I have a deep love/fascination for airplanes. As in, why didn’t I become a pilot?!? pic.twitter.com/mwZQa16BiI— Tammi Roy 🇨🇦 (@MyChaos) May 16, 2020
The tour started off in Nova Scotia and has since flown over cities like Toronto, Edmonton, Red Deer and Kamloops.
Thank you Snowbirds for honoring essential workers and Canada today. All the Staff at AMH at the St. Albert office felt very moved by your display of skill and solidarity. We thank you.— WinderS (@SmarWendy) May 16, 2020
The fly overs seem to be giving a much-needed boost of morale to healthcare workers and other frontline heroes, and really that makes it all worth it.

The routes are subject to change and not announced too far in advance. Keep checking their social media to see where they'll be flying over next.
Wait a minute..those aren't hornets..It was great catching the @CFSnowbirds paying their respects to Cold Lake front-line workers and everyone helping flatten the curve today. Thank you all for flying across Canada inspiring Canadians. Stay safe. #opinspiration #cfsnowbirds #rcaf pic.twitter.com/2E89scIKNg— Krystalphotos (@krystalphotos2) May 14, 2020
When it comes to the Internet lately, if it's not coronavirus updates it's murder hornets, so it's refreshing to see an uplifting trend dominating Canadian feeds.
