The planes initially were planned to be on display for Sunday and Monday but the visit was postponed because of sporadic rainy weather.
The planes are coming to Debert from New Brunswick where they are also holding static displays.
The planes were among a number that were used during the Second World War for training hundreds of thousands allied Second World War aviators at air fields across Canada, including Debert.
Yellow Wings volunteer pilots are to also be on hand to talk about the significance of the historic planes, which are operated by Vintage Wings of Canada.
