This week the guys and I visited the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, Ontario.
That's our 12 year old beside me (growing like a weed!) The highlight of our trip, the Avro Lancaster Bomber. So very cool up close.
Our oldest is very interested in history, particularly WWII, and he could tell us lots about this night bomber. I had 5 uncles and an aunt serve in WWII so it was pretty awesome seeing all the planes and displays.
The volunteers are really knowledgeable and the guys got to climb into an Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck.
The CF-100 was a jet interceptor/fighter.
So many cool graphics on the restored planes.
Hot Gen is a B-25 and the graphics were popular on souvenirs in the gift shop!
Great views from the upper observation areas, and an outside balcony area with views of more planes.
We really enjoyed our visit and if you are in southern Ontario it is well worth a visit.
Keeping all those in the path of Hurricane Irene in my thoughts this weekend. Stay safe!
