Catch the Wings and Wheels Heritage Festival May 26 and 27 at Downsview Park.


Toronto’s second annual Wings and Wheels Heritage Festival is scheduled at the Toronto Aerospace Museum next weekend, May 26 and 27.


The show will be held at Downsview Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The festival is patterned on grassroots aviation fly-ins held at Downsview airport in the 1930s and 1940s.

This year’s festival also celebrates the 60th birthday of the de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver bush plane, built right at de Havilland’s Downsview assembly plant in the 1950s and includes vintage airplane and helicopter flights.

Other features include a full-scale replica of the Avro Arrow, a Lockheed 10A that is Canada’s oldest airworthy airliner, a display of more than 100 classic cars, including Triumphs, MGs, and military vehicles, and the opportunity to drive a six-wheel Bison truck simulator.
