    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

Weather wasnt so good first show day ,...I was in a noisy environment with alot going on so I only caught some transmissions ,...but it seemed we had a few issues ,...the sabre which was supposed to go up with the f-18 aborted I didnt catch the reason why & the f-18 show seemed cut a bit short , I assume due to the low ceiling Snowbirds seemed to be 1 plane short for their performance , and at one point I heard
" Number 3 has a bird strike " Terminate " Terminate" Terminate" then all planes separated & checked in
3 landed safely & I think was back up again , or a backup plane was launched?
Then Im not sure but I though I heard the "Terminate" call again when the team went in some dense low cloud ,...they continued on with a modified show ,.....but definitely some very interesting comms

Hello All
I was at the air show yesterday,We one vip tickets threw the A Channel/CTV the grounds were flooded everybody had to park at devonshire mall and get bused to airport.. For the show alot of the flying was either cut short or didn't fly at all do to low ceiling. The F18 went up first checked weather conditions did a few things then called in to air boss said do to safety concerns he was unable to continue and will be landing

Hope today is better.

The A channel interviewed the Boss on Friday, he said that they would be down a plane because one pilot is not feeling well.
