Arrival Location is Shell Aviation, 316 Hector Dougall Way at the Thunder Bay International Airport. You won’t be able to access the tarmac at the Thunder Bay International Airport but this C-130 Hercules is a sight to be seen and shared with the kids.

Weather Trivia: Thunder Bay is known for its proximity to Lake Superior, one of the largest and deepest of the Great Lakes. The lake plays a significant role in moderating the city’s climate. It has a cooling effect in the summer and a warming effect in the winter, making the weather in Thunder Bay more temperate compared to other regions at similar latitudes.
