Three replica World War I planes will land in Regina on Sunday for people to come and see.
The Nieuport 17, the Sopwith Pup and the SE5A will fly into the Regina airport and be on display from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
The planes are flown by members of the Vimy Flight Team. The team consists of a group of pilots from across Canada who are retired or active members of the Canadian military.
The planes that are on display, were the same ones who flew across the crowd at the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy ridge Ceremony on April 9, 2017.
Member of the Canadian Aviation Historical Society Regina Chapter, Will Chabun joined the 980 CJME Morning Show on Friday. Chabun said these planes are quite small.
“The Nieuport 17 fighter for example, only weighs about 1,200 pounds!” said Chabun. “The engines are quite small too, so weather plays a big part in the scheduling for these planes to arrive.”

The team of pilots have been travelling from east to west across Canada as part of the Vimy flight: Birth of a Nation tour. Their next stop is in Davidson, Sask.
