25 aerobatic shots from the 2014 Air Show in Toronto

The 65th running of the Canadian International Air Show (CIAS) on Toronto's waterfront featured a selection of military and civilian aircraft taking to the skies to perform for the crowds at the Canadian National Exhibition, but, as usual, it was difficult to avoid seeing (and definitely hearing) them no matter where you were in the city this weekend.

Thankfully for those whose sensibilities are easily shaken, the air show's selection this year has minimized the shock-and-awe of modern US military jet teams (who are unable to perform here due to budget cutbacks) in favour of a much quieter, smoother show that still managed to amuse and delight.
