We are Reopening!

CATPM Armed Forces Day Celebration

Sunday June 4th, 10 am to 3pm

The Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum at McGill Field, Brandon Airport will be having its grand reopening by recognizing Armed Forces Day, Sunday June 4thbetween 10:00 am and 3:00 pm. The public is invited to participate in this family friendly event.  The Royal Canadian Air Force is expected to send aircraft that could include a C-130 Hercules and CT-142 Dash 8 and aircraft/helicopters from Southport.  Along with our own flying aircraft consisting of a Cornell, Tiger Moth, Harvard, Stinson and Fleet Finch, visiting civilian aircraft may include a Musketeer, Stearman, Harvard, T28 Trojan and Nanchang.  There will be no flying aircraft demonstrations, but you will be able to get up close and personal with all the aircraft and in many cases speak directly to the pilots flying them. A special participant will be a CF18 Fighter Full Scale Cockpit.  The museum will also be open for viewing to take in our many non-flying aircraft and vintage vehicles and artifacts.  There will be free parking and free admission.  Donations would be greatly appreciated.

The Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum is proud to be one of the seven Manitoba Signature Museums, a Manitoba Star Attraction and a National Historic Site.
