The inaugural flypast of the Centennial Heritage Flight
June 7, 2009

For the first time in the 2009 Centennial of Flight Airshow season, a three-ship formation consisting of the CF-18 Century Hornet, a Snowbird tutor repainted to the original Golden Centennaire colours and the F-86 Hawk One Sabre flew for Canadians  to help commemorate 100 years of powered flight in Canada. The formation, called the Centennial Heritage Flight, flew its first flypast at the Portage Armed Forces Day over Southport airfield Sunday, 7 June.

Although the weather was overcast and cool, the two-day show was well attended with over 10,000 spectators throughout Manitoba and the surrounding area.
