I missed this festival in my previous post about air shows taking place this summer and since it’s coming up in less than two weeks I’m giving it a post all of its own. The Wings and Wheels Heritage Festival will be taking place May 28th and 29th at Downsview Park in Toronto.

  • CH-146 “Griffon”

Of note is that this show is open to fly-ins and Bombardier welcomes you and your aircraft to Downsview Airport (CYZD). You have to register your aircraft on the show website (which is free) and follow the instructions in the Canadian Flight Supplement.
