The Northwestern Ontario Aviation Heritage Centre was conceived as a means of collecting and preserving much of the aviation history of the area extending from the Manitoba border, north to Hudson Bay, east to Fort Albany and south to Wawa and west to the Manitoba border. An area of 526,372 square kilometres (203,089 square miles) or almost 50 percent of the area of Ontario. Although NOAHC is located in Thunder Bay, it is a regional centre.


Now that Fall is here, please come out any Sunday afternoon,
have a look around and join us for coffee and conversation.


Sunday November 16, 2014 1-4pm

In keeping with Remembrance Day and the One Hundredth Anniversary of WWI, NOAHC is pleased to present
"Keeping Them Flying" - Aircraft Maintenance during World War I.

The men who kept the RFC and RAF aircraft in airworthy condition during WWI have received little attention,
compared to the pilots and other aircrew who flew the planes.
Nevertheless, the work of ground crews was essential to the war effort.
David Kemp will give a presentation on the work required to keep the wood,
wire and fabric aircraft of the time in flying condition.

The presentation is based on information from a notebook kept by a fitter, who served in the RAF
during the last few months of the war.
Everyone is welcome to come out! Coffee and conversation will follow.

Thank you again for the support for our Centre.
