2010 Toronto Wings and Wheels Heritage Festival

The 5th annual Toronto Wings and Wheels Heritage Festival was once again held in Downsview Park by the Canadian Air & Space Museum.
The weather was excellent again all weekend, and the show seems to get better organized every year!

My personal highlight this year was finally able to watch the Aero L-29 Delfin fly!

The other highlight is this great panning shot I took of the Harvard. I don’t know when I’ll be able to produce the same result again…

The replica Silver Dart that flew in February 2009 in Baddeck, Nova Scotia, celebrating 100 years of Canadian flight. This aircraft will be on display at the Canadian Air & Space Museum for the next few years, then it will be moved to its new permanent home in Baddeck.
