George Edward Miller, O.M.M., CD, has combined several careers in Canada’s aviation world and his accomplishments have cemented his reputation as an outstanding leader. His 35 years of service in the RCAF/CF were marked by many superlatives, chief amongst them his selection as the 1973 leader of the “Snowbirds” aerobatic team. Many of the signature elements of the current team’s identity and operational approach were implemented during his tenure ranging from the nine aircraft formation to the team’s distinctive branding. His post air force career included running air shows in Ottawa and the significant and sustained development of the Langley Regional Airport into a major part of the airport infrastructure of British Columbia. George continues to lead a formation team active in the Lower Mainland, the “Fraser Blues” which do a “fly pass” for a number of Remembrance Day Services including at the Fort Langley Cenotaph, across the road from his favourite art gallery, the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery.
