Hamilton Airshow June 18 & 19, 2011
Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, “Canada’s Flying Museum”, is bringing back the Airshow to Hamilton. The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum started the Hamilton Airshow back in 1975 and for the re-introduction of the show, we are going back to our roots as the entire show will feature vintage aircraft. In fact, the 2011 show will be used as a “ramp up” for a much larger show being planned for 2012 that will celebrate the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s 40th Anniversary.
The 2011 Hamilton Airshow will feature over 40 vintage aircraft from such organizations as Vintage Wings of Canada, The Military Aviation Museum, Commemorative Air Force, Canadian Aerobatic Team, Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association, The Great War Flying Museum, 1941 Historical Aircraft Group and Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.
