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.

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.

Miss MitchellThere 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.
