Jet fighters overhead is a sure sign that summer is almost over as the 68th annual Canadian International Air Show roared into town.

Thousands lined the shores of Lake Ontario Saturday to witness an assortment of flying machines from slow to supersonic.

Big jet fighters like the CF-18, decked out in Canada 150 colours, and the stealthy F-22 Raptor from the U.S Air Force scratched the skies above the Ex.

Air Show favourite Mike Wiskus returned in his aerobatic Pitts Special along with the Canadian Harvard Acrobatic Team with four yellow planes performing high manoeuvres.

The perennial stars of the show – the Canadian Forces Snowbirds – dazzled the crowd with their precision flying and beautiful loops and near-misses.

The air show continues through Labour Day and runs from noon to 3 p.m.
