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.
NORTHWESTERN ONTARIO AVIATION HERITAGE CENTRE: IMPORTANT NOTICE!
Effective September 21, 2016, the current Aviation Centre located at 430 Waterloo Street will be closed to the public, as the organization prepares for a move to our new location at 905 Victoria Avenue East in October.
At this time, NOAHC thanks all of the members, volunteers, and visitors,
who have contributed to the success of the Centre.
Look for a grand opening at our new facility early in the new year!
We will be continuing our mandate to preserve and share this region's rich aviation history
with more displays and events.

MOVIE SHOWING "REUNION OF GIANTS"
We will be showing the movie "
Reunion of Giants"
on Thursday, November 10th at 7:00 at the West Thunder Community Centre.
It is the story of the historic reunion of the last two airworthy WWII Lancaster Bombers,
our own Canadian Mynarski Memorial "VRA" aka "Vera," and one British, in England in the summer of 2014.
They presented air shows in various towns and cities across England.
The movie has wonderful aerial shots, and covers their difficulties,
as well as their enthusiastic reception wherever they went.
