Canada's Aviation Heritage
Publisher Larry Milberry's
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.
BIG AVIATION EVENT HAPPENING IN THUNDER BAY THIS AUGUST!
The Northwestern Ontario Aviation Heritage Centre is happy to be part of an exciting event happening this summer in Thunder Bay for aviation buffs!
The Arizona and Minnesota Chapters of the United States Commemorative Air Force will be visiting the Thunder Bay Airport with a 4 engine restored B17 G Bomber known as the Flying Fortress and Sentimental Journey and the B25 Bomber 'Miss Mitchell'. They will be flying over the city at noon on Monday, August 1 and park on the Confederation College Aviation Centre for Excellence (ACE) apron for a week long static show for the public. They will leave Monday, August 8.
There will also be an opportunity to purchase flights. These flights will be restricted to certain days towards the end of the week and are expensive but available. Imagine a flight in a restored WW11 bomber...a bucket list wish for many! Official prices and sign up information can be found at https://www.facebook.com/events/1611625042499707/. All the details are there. Flight prices are in USD!! Gate admission is $10 CDN and merchandise will also be sold in CDN dollars. Flight rides can also be purchased on site during display hours.

This event will be hosted by Confederation College on their ramp at the ACE Centre off of Arthur Street West on Hawker Road, and supported by the Thunder Bay International Airport and NOAHC. Check out the Commemorative Air Force Airbase Arizona website www.azcaf.org .
