The St. Catharines/Niagara District Airport from June 15 to 18 hosted a T-28 Trojan formation training event. The airport, CYSN, is located in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, with a 5,000-foot runway, 24-hour Customs clearance, NAV CANADA on site, and Avgas and Jet Fuel refueling available. Approximately 75 aircraft are based at CYSN.

Five North American T-28 Trojan aircraft took part at the formation clinic, three from Ontario and two from United States, with primary pilots Dr. Dave Martin, Alf Beam, Danny Richer, Andrew Swart, Jim Kelly and Brent Mahoney.

The North American Aviation T-28 Trojan is a radial-engine aircraft used by the United States military beginning in the 1950s. For more photos the event visit Gusair’s website.
