Busy Weekend


I’m currently in Montreal on business and I’m still recovering from the Wings and Wheels Festival at Downsview on the weekend.  Long hours on my feet tired me out but it was a great event.

Wings and Wheels 2008

I was most impressed by the guys and gals from the Canadian Armed Forces who brought their toys out to play.  They’re very friendly and a credit to Canada.

The CF-18 flew in on Thursday and spent the weekend in the hanger so everyone could get a really good look at this awesome fighter.  This shot was taken just after the doors were closed to the public.  The gentleman standing is “Cherry” the pilot and peering into the cockpit is the aircraft commander of the CP-140 Aurora.

I’m still trying to process all the pictures I took and they’re being uploaded to this Flickr set.
