Canadian Heritage Warplane Museum
Today was the CHWM’s 40th Anniversary, and they celebrated with a fantastic airshow! My brother volunteers, and my family thought it was appropriate to attend. Plus it was father’s day. Men love their planes. Especially WW2 planes.
I myself am not that interested in planes (unless of course flying in them!), I’m more of a train person. But it was really cool! Being able to see things take flight that…… really shouldn’t be able to is really enthralling! Their engines make these wonderful noises, everybody’s clapping… History man! It sounds really cool.
I took some photos and I’d like to share them but I don’t know the names of any of the planes so I’d rather not subtitle them. The photos are unedited (only the size has changed for web viewing), and may be pretty shoddy because my camera has lens problems. It’s 4-5 years old and also a 6MP point & shoot……… I took a bunch of photos but I’m only going to share a few nice ones haha. My camera died and was unable to focus during the plane’s actual flight so I don’t have many of those…
P.S. My mum insisted I wore my “Cool Your Jets” shirt. I’m a fool.
During the Airshow, this one was fantastic! I believe it’s called the Saber. This and the CF-18 were the greatest!
I think the only plane I didn’t get a snapshot of was the Lancaster. I’m a little upset because it’s the most talked about plane at the Museum! Probably because it’s the only fly worthy one left in the world, and it’s in gorgeous condition. Their website sucks, but it’s got quite a bit of info of the place too!
I guess I’m really lucky this place is around the corner from where I live ahaha…!
