Vimy Flight Tour - Day One
On July 17-18, The Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association hosted an open house featuring the Vimy Flight Tour at the Tillsonburg Regional Airport.
Vimy Flight is a team of dedicated volunteer pilots and ground support that had the honour of performing a commemorative bi-plane fly-past over the Vimy Ridge Memorial in Vimy France.
The team is now bringing Vimy home with its Birth of a Nation Tour spanning the country from coast to coast, engaging with communities to honour Canadian heroes of the past 100 years and to celebrate Canada’s 150th year of nationhood.
The two-day event at Tillsonburg Regional Airport gave the public the opportunity to see the vintage First World War aircraft and meet the crew. The Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association also displayed some of its Second World War training aircraft and allowed the public to tour its facilities and displays.
