To mark the 100th anniversary of the First World War and the Battle of Vimy Ridge on Sunday April 9, 2017 The Waterloo Warbirds ensemble a historic flying formation with two of the organization jets

The Canadian victory at Vimy a defining moment for Canada, when the country emerged from under the shadow of Britain and felt capable of greatness. Canadian troops also earned a reputation as formidable, effective troops because of the stunning success. But it was a victory at a terrible cost. By nightfall on 12 April 1917, the Canadian Corps was in firm control of the ridge. The corps suffered 10,602 casualties: 3,598 killed and 7,004 wounded

The battle has since become an important symbol for Canada, the place where Canadians from across the country delivered an unprecedented victory, all four divisions of the Canadian Corps fighting together for the first time in the war

Derek Hammond and Al Clark led the way in the T-33 followed by Richard Cooper and Ramona Ostrander in the L-29. At 11:15am the formation flew over the Vimy Ridge Memorial in London Ontario
