The 2007 edition enjoyed excellent weather conditions although the show itself can only be viewed with backlight from the shore. Last year, the show was chosen to host the Raptors international air show debut, this year two F-22As actually landed at Lester B. Pearson IAP to participate in the show, thus marking the Raptors first landing outside a US air base. Aircraft marked + operated from Lester B. Pearson IAP and could be found in the area near spot #7 on our airfield guide, with all aircraft visible from outside. Runway 05/23 was used by most participants during the show making spots #4 and #9 the places to be from 01.00PM till 04.30PM. Light aircraft operated from nearby Toronto-City Centre.
