The Stittsville Village Association is proud to host Stittsville’s free, family-friendly Canada Day celebration July 1st on the grounds of Sacred Heart High School! It’s an amazing collaboration of volunteer effort, federal and municipal government grants, and local business support.
There will be lots of activities throughout the day, including:
Here’s a video from B. R. Ravishankar of the Canada Day Fireworks in Stittsville. They were part of an annual event organized by the Stittsville Village Association on the grounds of Sacred Heart High School.
Stittsville resident B. R. Ravishankar took these photos early on Tuesday evening. He’s wondering if anyone knows what the planes were doing:
This evening as I was walking in my neighbourhood in Stittsville, I noticed several long contrails from airplanes. This is nothing unusual, but beautiful to see in clear blue skies. But what intrigued me today was that out of several planes with contrails, only one had another plane traveling right above it, at the same speed, with a much smaller contrail. It looked like a much smaller jet.
This is quite unusual, at least to me, since I believe no two planes are allowed to cross paths at the same time even at different elevations. I was curious about whether the media is aware of plane(s) being escorted by NORAD or Canadian airforce jets.
