Two iconic aircraft are now part of this year’s Princeton International Air Show.

The Vintage Wings of Canada Boeing Stearman PT-27 Kaydet and a P51 Mustang IV will be in town on July 21.

Construction of Kaydets began in the 1930s and required special modifications to survive Canadian winters, including navigation lights and heated cockpits.

The Mustang IV was built during the Second World War and was capable of escorting daylight bomber formations from the U.S. to Germany and back.

The planes will be stationed in Calgary before the show, making it easier to fly them to Princeton.

Photos of the annual air show are available on the organization’s website.
