Description:
RCAF Station Carberry was a Second World War air training station located near Carberry, Manitoba, Canada. The Royal Air Force (RAF), opened No. 33 Service Flying Training School (SFTS) here in December 1940. As with all RAF training facilities in Canada, the station was subject to Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) administrative and operational control and formally became part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan in 1942. The school closed in November 1944. The airfield was one of the few double-sided aerodromes built for wartime training with six parallel runways formed in a triangle rather than the typical three runways formed in a triangle.

After the war the station was used as a storage depot until the RCAF moved out. The site is now the location of a McCain Foods potato processing facility.
