    This is the place to post those pictures of old planes on a stand, like the Golden Hawk below in a park in Brockville, On.

    Fast in its time. 6-50cal machine guns in the nose. Compared to the junk Tudors we fly now at Air Shows.

    Not a 'real' plane, but worthy of consideration anyway:

    The Avro Arrow in Barry's Bay.

    Someone here will recognize this one ... (I was born across the road from it, more or less).

    Of course not. It's not alive.


    Or a plane.

    Even these don't count, since they're not mounted.

    A little ashamed to admit I do not know these by name. All of my Clan's war hero's were killed in the gun turret's of the Lancaster. Pic's were all taken at Base Borden.

    Looking a little sad

    There used to be a Lancaster on a pedestal down on the lakeshore in Toronto as well, I'm not sure whether it's still there or not, the last time I saw it was about 20 years ago. At that time it was covered with seagull shit and a bit of a disgrace.

    Good stuff, Dave.
    You've got a CF-5 Freedom Fighter, Grumman Tracker, CF-104 Starfighter and F-86 Sabre.

    :thumb

    Toronto's Lakeshore Lancaster was removed iirc, after City Council decreed that it unnecessarily glorified war. :rolleyes
    May have just been a politically correct way to avoid the cost of having to spruce it up now and then?

    If you haven't been past Ear Falls, that's either a really good guess or some diligent Googling :lol3

    But you're right, it's a Noorduyn Norseman. A Norseman and a 'Bombadeer' were the only motorized vehicles I was in until I was about 10 years old. Well, those and the 'ferry' between Cochenour and Mckenzie Island where we lived.

    The store is a bit rough these days...

    But I digress ... back to the planes on a stick.
