WINNIPEG — They’ve nearly been here a week, but today is your last chance to see the B-17 and B-25 bombers from the Second World War.

The Royal Canadian Aviation Museum is hosting “Maid in the Shade,” a twin-engine B-25 bomber used for high- and low-level bombing, plus “Sentimental Journey,” the B-17 bomber that last visited the city in 2013.

The crew will be available to answer questions from visitors from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
