The Snowbirds are the most famous military demonstration team ever formed in Canada. The Canadian military has a strong history involving other teams prior to the Snowbirds. In 1929, the first ever Canadian demonstration team, the Siskins was formed by the RCAF. The Golden Hawks followed in 1959, and in 1967, the Golden Centennaires were formed to commemorate Canada's centennial year. The Golden Centennaires flew only that one year. Not until four years later were the Snowbirds formed. The following is the history of each of these teams
