Grab your lawn chair and claim your spot on the tarmac at the Brantford Municipal Airport (110 Aviation Ave.) for the annual Community Charity Airshow on Wednesday, August 28, 2019. The gates will open at 10:00 a.m. and the flying show will begin at 12:30 p.m.
Tickets are free for this widely-popular event, but donations are greatly appreciated. This event raises funds for two worthwhile local charities – the Rotary Club of Brantford and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. While the airshow is free, parking will be $20 (cash only) for onsite parking. So fill up your vehicle with friends and family—it’s still the most inexpensive airshow to attend anywhere! If you would like to attend the show and are unable to drive, please call Brantford Transit (519-753-3847) to inquire about a free shuttle.
Enjoy special presentations from: CF-18 Demonstration Team, Avro Lancaster, Canadian Forces Snowbirds, North American B-25 Mitchell, Canadian Harvard Aerobatic Team, PBY Canso, Hamilton Sport Parachute Club, Pitts Special X 2, de Havilland Vampire, North American T-28 Trojans, Grumman Avenger, Douglas C-47 Dakota, and Land Lockheed T-333 Silver Star. Visit the Community Charity Airshow website to read all of the details about these exciting performers.
In addition to the above performers, there will also be several other planes on the grounds that will not be flying in the show, but will be a part of a static display so that you can see these amazing aircrafts up-close.
Fundraising Dinner Event
