The annual Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous Air Show is probably
as cold an air show as you can visit. Not just because
of the latitude of this barren place but mainly because of the
time of the year the show is held. The show is part of a week
full of local festivities celebrating the arrival of the first settlers
in the Yukon Territory, which borders Alaska. Not surprisingly,
participating aircraft came from Western Canada as well as
Alaska, and most of these were open to the public, preventing
unspoiled shots. The airfield was only open for a handful of
hours each day. A balmy -5°C on the first day was surpassed by
a chilly -17°C on the second day of the show, with crystal clear
conditions allowing for nice shots, provided you brought some
spare batteries for your camera... The Aurora arrived a few
hours after the show had offi cially ended. Only the Snowbirds
marked with an asterix were actually performing and made
some nice passes.
