If the weather cooperates, the Waterloo Warbirds will be up in the air on Remembrance Day to honour those who fought for our country.

The plan is to fly over area cenotaphs, as well as Mount View Cemetery in Cambridge and Mount Hope in Kitchener-Waterloo that have significant war memorials and buried service members.

"If it is operational, we will have it in the air," said Derek Hammond, President of the Waterloo Warbirds.

Waterloo Warbirds operates a fleet of five historic aircraft, including one WWII trainer (Harvard Mk IIb) and four jet trainers (MiG-15, de Havilland Vampire, Canadair CT-133 Silver Star and an Aero Vodochody L-29 Delfin) out of the Region of Waterloo International Airport.

The flight is scheduled for between 10:30 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. on November 11.

The Warbirds will also be flying over Guelph that day.
