Aviation history

Uncategorized

Had a great evening last night at the Canadian Aviation Museum.  We were treated to an empty museum and we even got a tour of the storage hanger.

I didn’t shoot all 250 pictures – only 233.  I’ve got lots of processing to do when I get back home but here’s a little teaser.

RL-206 was the last Avro CF-105 “Arrow” and was still under construction when the project was scrapped and all aircraft ordered destroyed.  Some enterprising Avro employees hid the nose section from the wrecking bar and it now sits as a sad tribute to this dark time for the Canadian aviation industry.

The weather this morning is crappy.  Guess I’ll attend the sessions instead of going downtown.
