Breitling Reno Air RacesHockey legend Wayne Gretzky pays surprise visit to the Snowbirds demonstration team
Canadian Forces aviation icon, The Snowbirds Air Demonstration Team (431 Squadron) brought stunning and thrilling performances to the North American public during 47th Reno Air Races. The event was a great success. On Saturday, September 18th, Snowbirds had a surprise visit from the guest of honour, another Canadian icon, Mr. Wayne Gretzky, a former Canadian professional ice hockey player and a Breitling ambassador. Being Canadian was not the only thing in common. Members of the Snowbirds, as well as Mr. Gretzky wear Breitling timepieces on their wrists, a great statement demonstrating the high level of excellence and professionalism, just what Breitling is all about.
This year, Canada’s Snowbirds celebrate their 40th Anniversary and Breitling, as a Double Diamond sponsor is presenting a Breitling timepiece during the anniversary celebration, which will take place in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada from October 22-24, 2010.
