Overland flooding surrounds a T33 fighter jet on display along Highway 10 and Sandison Road near the Brandon Municipal Airport on Sunday after rain fell almost non-stop throughout the weekend. The airport was closed due to the flooding.

Flights in and out of Brandon's airport are back on today, despite the main access road still being under water.

The Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum remains closed Monday.

The city of Brandon said that the McGill Field is open, but people will have to take a detour to get into the airport.

From the west, the city says, drivers should take Bloomsbury Road, also known as Road 111 N, which is located on the north side of the Trans-Canada Highway about a mile west of the KK Penner tire company. That road will connect with Sandison Road and lead into the airport.

However, Sandison Road east of the airport, on the main connection to Highway 10 remains underwater. The mile road at the KK Penner location is also underwater.

Detour signs will be in place along the Highways 1 and 10; and along the detour route. Airport staff will also be on site to direct traffic.

Travellers are encouraged to arrive at the airport terminal at least 90 minutes ahead of this afternoon’s flight.

The Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum remains closed Monday.
