Yorkton Mayor Charles A. Peaker took part in the opening ceremonies of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan Flying Training School No. 11. He is seen here making a speech. The crowd exceeded expectations! There were over two thousand cars to park and some 11,000 people were in attendance. It took two hours to make the trip from Yorkton to the airport.
