In honour of the thousands of Canadians who dedicated their lives to serve our nation, the Waterloo Warbirds will be up in the air on Nov. 11, 2020, weather permitting. 

The president of the Waterloo Warbirds, Derek Hammond, said, “If it is operational, we will have it in the air.” 

The Waterloo Warbirds plan to fly over all nine cenotaphs in Guelph and the Waterloo Region. In addition to flying over these cenotaphs, they will be overflying Mount View Cemetery in Cambridge, Mount Hope in Kitchener-Waterloo, and Woodlawn in Guelph, all of which have  significant war memorials and buried service members. 

Waterloo Warbirds operates five historical aircraft – one WWII trainer (Harvard Mk IIb) and four jet trainers (MiG-15, de Havilland Vampire, Canadair CT-133 Silver Star, and an Aero Vodochody L-29 Delfin). 

Their flight is expected to occur between 10:30 am and 11:15 am on Nov. 11, 2020. The specific route will be released the day before the flight.
