Lancaster Bomber Will Visit Thunder Bay


THUNDER BAY – The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s 1945 “Mynarski Memorial” Lancaster Mk 10 Bomber will pay a special visit to the Thunder Bay Airport from July 27-29, 2010 thanks to the support of Thunder Bay International Airports Authority, Confederation College Aviation Centre of Excellence and the Northwestern Ontario Aviation Heritage Centre.

The Lancaster Bomber will arrive in Thunder Bay on July 27th at approx. 12:45 pm and do some fly-bys of the airport (weather permitting) before locating to the College aircraft apron on the North side of the Airport. After the Lancaster arrives and is secured she will be opened to the media and local dignitaries for inspection from 1:30 to 3:30pm followed by a meet and greet with the flight crew.
On day 2 of the visit (July 28th) the Lancaster will be open to the general public for aircraft tours starting at 12:00 noon and ending at 5:00 pm. There will be no charge for admission but we would like to ask you to bring can food donations for the Confederation College Student Food Bank. The Lancaster crew will be asking for a $5 donation to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum to tour inside the Lancaster aircraft and will also have Lancaster merchandise and memorabilia available for purchase to help raise funds to cover the cost of Lancaster flight operations.
We hope you will take the time to come out and support these worthy causes and see and touch this very rare, special, iconic WW II RCAF aircraft – one of only two flying Lancaster aircraft remaining in the world today.
