John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport

John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport or Hamilton International (IATA: YHM, ICAO: CYHM), is an international airport in Mount Hope, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. It is named for John C. Munro, a Hamilton Member of Parliament and cabinet minister. Flyglobespan, which flew to Hamilton between 2007 and 2009, referred to the airport as Toronto Hamilton International Airport. The airport is designed for use by large airplanes on overseas flights, and includes a 10,006 ft × 200 ft (3,050 m × 61 m) asphalt runway with centreline lighting for low-visibility operations, and a smaller 6,010 ft × 150 ft (1,832 m × 46 m) asphalt runway. It serves as an alternate and reliever for nearby Toronto Pearson International Airport. The airport is situated 40 mi (65 km) from downtown Toronto and 6 nautical miles (11 km; 6.9 mi) southwest of Hamilton. It is classified as an airport of entry by Nav Canada and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). CBSA officers at this airport handle aircraft with no more than 250 passengers; however, they can handle up to 450 if the aircraft is unloaded in stages. The airport also hosts the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. Hamilton can see cargo operations with very large aircraft such as the more commonly seen Antonov An-124 or an occasional Boeing 747. Because of this Hamilton has developed a niche community of aircraft spotters.

Hamilton

Hamilton (/ˈhæməltən/; 2011 population 519,949; UA population 670,580; CMA population 721,053) is a port city in the Canadian province of Ontario. Conceived by George Hamilton when he purchased the Durand farm shortly after the War of 1812, Hamilton has become the centre of a densely populated and industrialized region at the west end of Lake Ontario known as the Golden Horseshoe. On January 1, 2001, the new City of Hamilton was formed through the amalgamation of the former city and the other constituent lower-tier municipalities of the Regional Municipality of Hamilton-Wentworth with the upper-tier regional government. Residents of the old city are known as Hamiltonians. Since 1981, the metropolitan area has been listed as the ninth largest in Canada and the third largest in Ontario. Hamilton is home to the Royal Botanical Gardens, the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, the Bruce Trail, McMaster University and Mohawk College. McMaster University is ranked 4th in Canada and 94th in the world by Times Higher Education Rankings 2015-16 and has a well-known medical school. The Canadian Football Hall of Fame can be found downtown right beside Hamilton City Hall and across town to the east, the Canadian Football League's Hamilton Tiger-Cats began playing at the new Tim Hortons Field in 2014, which was built as part of the 2015 Pan American Games. Possibly because of its diverse environment, numerous TV and film productions have been filmed in Hamilton, regulated by the Hamilton Film and Television Office. A growing arts and culture community garnered media attention in 2006 when the Globe and Mail published an article called "Go West, Young Artist" about Hamilton's growing art scene. The article highlighted local art galleries, recording studios and independent film production.
