To recognize the importance of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton invited owners of BCATP type aircraft to fly-in to one of the largest gatherings of "Yellow Birds"

The British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP) was a massive, joint military aircrew training program created by the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, during the Second World War. BCATP remains as one of the single largest aviation training programs in history and was responsible for training nearly half the pilots and navigators during the war

Canada was chosen as the primary location for "The Plan". Canada trained 131,500 personnel. Elementary training took approximately eight weeks, which included at least 50 hours of flying. Aircraft commonly used at Elementary Flying Training Schools were de Havilland Tiger Moths, Fleet Finches, and Fairchild Cornells
