I'm able! This is actually the airport I work at Razz

Do they allow "our stuff" as model entries? I remember the flier from a couple of years ago.. I wonder what hardcore plastic model guys think of RC stuff Wink

I'd enter my big-scale ship and maybe a tank!

If I go I'll likely run into you, I don't know yet how much time I can dedicate to it, being on nights and such. Will advise.

Fairly good show with some excellent entries. I did meet up with a person who has 1/16 scale tank crew stuff and he said he would send some pics. Once I get those I will make a post.
Looking all the planes indoors was a highlight for me. They had the lancaster with the engines torn down for yearly inspection. I'll post pics of them a bit later...
I think we could of set up a display for the club had we more notice. I did leave a bunch of business cards at the entrance for the club.

Firstly Jordan ,you have a most envious job.
I checked out the wed site and it looked like Ian was a lucky guy to have gone.Thx for promoting the club ( I need to get on this computer thing more often ) Wonderful model details .
PS: A number of years ago a friend, Lou Naggy, was one of the last people to get a ride in a Spitfire they had in their collection at this airport before it was destroyed in a fire . For a while ,I understand the society would fire up the Lancaster for a fist full of dollars as well ,not should if that is still an option.

The Lanc flies regularly in the warmer months, usually starting in late March if its winter maintenance is all done.

For $2000 a head you get to take a trip with 3 other people for an hour. Also fully tax deductible Smile

I think they could bring down the price a lot. All they would need to do is carry more passengers on each flight. Taken the bomb load they were carriing, it won't be a weight issue. This way, more people I think would be able to afford the flight. For me and my two sons... $7,500 ouch.

It would be a treat just to see it take off . A real piece of history.
Interesting point Ian, volume pricing , I wonder what the best group size and rate would be?

Theres a combination of issues with the Lanc. First people wait years and come from around the world to take a flight, and it is INCREDIBLY maintenance intensive.

They're restricted by Transport Canada on passenger loads, it's complicated because they are not a 'commercial carrier' of passengers.

My dad has been up in the Harvard and Beech 18, both are much more reasonable. With a membership ($125.00 + $16.25 HST), they're $275 and $60 respectively.. http://www.warplane.com/pages/membership.html

Prices have gone up, but these aircraft are 75-80 years old Razz

Windsor has a Lancaster that they are trying to restore. It's a complete mess, it was on display in a park for years and was abused. The park now has two Spitfires on display on pillers where the bomber used to be.

Absolutely none for the warplane museum, they receive no public money. They survive from daily school trips Razz

The one in Windsor is also mainly funded by donations too. They are also restoring a Mosquito.
I haven't been there since they move to there new location. Would like to get to one in Hamilton one day. Been to a nice one in Halifax.

You could get a ride in a B-17 for $375 USD about 12 years ago. I think it is closer to $500 now but I haven't seen a rideable B-17 in awhile. I got to walk through one last year for $12. I would have given triple that easily! I also got to fondle a replica Fokker drVII, Fokker Tri-plane, as well as a P-51B at the same show!

There you go , US citizens get to promote the things that secured thier ( OUR ) freedom . Here we get harassed and jailed if we have or want a replica paper mache ( paper ) weapons.

Wonder if they would let you back in to the Great White North if one was to go south for this experiance?
