Wings & Wheels Heritage Festival

Uncategorized

Big days at the Toronto Aerospace Museum as they prepare for this year’s Wings & Wheels Heritage Festival on May 26 and 27.  I’ve signed up as a volunteer and got a few details on Wednesday.

This year, the festival celebrates the 60th anniversary of the De Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver, one of the most famous bush planes ever built.  The prototype Beaver, CF-FHB-X, which made its first flight in the hands of test pilot Russell Bannock at Downsview on August 16, 1947 was built in the museum.

A number of Beavers will be flying in along with other new and old aircraft.  As well, vintage cars, motorcycles and trucks will be on display.  Many events are planned so the whole family should have a great time.
