The Snowbirds will try to target hospital areas and residential neighbourhoods so that as many people as possible are able to view them.

The Snowbirds have been doing a cross-country salute to Canadians helping fight the spread of COVID-19 since last weekend, starting in Nova Scotia.

The mission dubbed, Operation INSPIRATION will see the team's signature nine-jet formation, with trailing white smoke, flying over cities across the country.

"We want Canadians to know we're in this with you", said Lieutenant-Colonel Mike French, Commanding Officer of the Canadian Forces Snowbirds, in a press release.
