I didn’t realize until I attended the volunteer’s meeting at the Toronto Aerospace Museum on Wednesday night that the Lancaster they’re rebuilding is the one that used to stand on a pedestal near the CNE on Lake Ontario. Drove by it for years and was always a little sad to see it becoming shabbier as time went on. Great to see that it will soon be restored to its original glory and I am excited that I might play some small part in making that happen. Here’s what it looks like today.
