Default Wingham Jets 2009 Ontario Canada

Wingham Airport has graciously allowed us to hold our 1st annual “Wingham Jets”, during June 19th, 20th and 21st 2009. Wingham is approximately 100km north of London Ontario; it is approximately 2.5 hrs from the Detroit border and 3 hrs from Niagara Falls.

The Airport has a 75’ by 4000’ runway and a big sky all around, more information to come, or send me a PM and I’ll answer whatever questions you have.

We really look forward to having some of our American Friends join us for a weekend of great flying!!

I've got those dates marked down in my agenda and will be there. I was just wondering what Kits are those F18's. They are very nice looking birds

I would love to attend.

What customs requirements need to be met when traveling from the US?

HI, yes, a two day drive from Florida and the great thing about the runway is that it is wide and the winds are down the runway.

This is the closest to the airport, about 5 min. I have a block of rooms reserved at Lindon Motel for Wingham Jets, just mention us, they are getting gobbled up. once full the next Motel is about 38Km away (20miles)



Note, There will be unserviced camping available, on site

It would be a good two days, but worth it It would be an Honor to have you up, and when your done a Wingham you can head over to Winamac Jet rally which I believe is the next weekend.......what a great holiday

Hey Rob! If you've got the time, head on up to Wingham for a low key, fun, Canadian jet weekend. Then, head on over to Winamac on Monday for a week of jet flying.

That's what Ann and I will be doing.
