On Friday May 31st, the pilot of this year’s CF-18 demonstration team Patrick Pollen is coming to THEMUSEUM. The demonstration team will be flying in the Waterloo Air Show on Saturday June 1st. Pollen is here to present on what it is like to fly Canada’s front line Jet Fighter. After his presentation he will be available for questions as well as autographs.
