The Snowbirds performed at the opening ceremonies for the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. 1990 was the 20th Anniversary of the Snowbirds, and the team used red and white smoke to mark the occasion. They also flew their 1000th demonstration in 1990. In 1991 they performed at the Disney 20th Anniversary Celebrations. 1993 marked the first performance outside of Canada and the U.S. when the team flew three shows at Guadalajara, Mexico. Also in 1993, team lead Major Dean Rainkie flew a rare formation with an Su-27 of the Russian Knights at the Abbotsford Airshow. Another rare flypast involving a Snowbird was at Abbotsford in 1995 when team lead Major Steve Hill lead a formation with aircraft from the Brazilian Esquadrilha da Fumaca, the Chilean Halcones, and the Northern Lights Kiss Lá… on September 14, 2009
