November 21, 2003 - Heritage Classic Hockey Time

This coming weekend is the Heritage Classic Hockey game, played here in Edmonton. Not being a big hockey fan, I haven't tried to get tickets, but the city is certainly abuzz with it. I happened to be at home today, and was just walking back into my living room when I spotted the Snowbirds aerobatic team flyby along the river valley. Not having my camera in my hand at the time, I couldn't get a picture of that best flyby (from my viewpoint), but I did grab it and try my best. They had smoke generators onboard and were using them.
