A lovely set!
As Dan states the Catalina puts ours to shame!
I also think there T28 makes our examples look drab!
And probably alone on this but love the P-51!! :smile:

Never knew there were TWO Lysanders flying over there.

And the golden Sabre is pornographic. :drool:



Me neither, that silver one is a gem!!

Not sure what I love best, the Golden Sabre, the Trojon (in that scheme), Firefly or the gun nose B-25! An-2 is nice, was on a programme on CH5 IIRC?

Great selection! Nice to see the camo Mustang back in business! Shame CWH never seems to want to display that lovely Canso at their own show... :sad:

This one's definitely on the radar for next year. Bit too far to drive, but airfare to Ottawa seems affordable.

A nice selection of shots, the VWoC guys are a very friendly bunch and they have a nice set-up there at Gatineau.

Dan, the Lysanders are from the CWH at Hamilton (target tug scheme) and VWoC (silver), both are recent restorations, flying within the last 2 or 3 years.

Oh, and the 'Sukhoi 50' is in fact a Yak! :wink:

What a superb set - one placed I'd love to get to at some point.

Firefly does it for me.

Amazing variety of warbirds and markings. Another vote for the Catalina. Looks great with the camo wing as does the Mustang. Great to see the Firefly and the silver Lysander looks lovely. :clap:
