Battle of Britian Day in Ottawa

I have to tell you about my was "Family Day" at CFB Petawawa, and my nephew is a Capt. in the air force and flys the Griffon for 427 Sqdn so I made the trip from Dryden (tho other end of the province!) to go for a ride.
The Sqdn had a hanger set up for the familys of the 427 and I got to go for a couple rides in the Griffon and even got to go "tactical" skimming along at a few feet above the Ottawa river dodging islands and having a blast.
If that wasn't enough, my nephew and I had planned a day trip to the Air and Space museum for sunday. We arrived at the museum just as the Battle of Britian service was begining! The air command band was there, the General in command of the Air Force, Peter Mckay (Minister of Defence) and dignitaries from Britian, Australia, Poland Germany and more to lay wreaths for the service men killed in the battle.
Then the Lank from Hamilton does a fly past with a Spitfire and a Hurricane on one wing and a Mustang and a P40 on the other! followed by a C130j Herc and a pair of CF18's (or as my nephew calls them "twin tailed plastic f@g jets" LOL) Heli guys eh?

after the events we took the tour of the museums, and went for a ride in a 1937 Waco biplane!
all in all it was a pretty good weekend!

Thanks to my Nephew and all the folks at 427 Lion Sqdn for a great time!

Re: Battle of Britian Day in Ottawa

I wondered where the Lancaster had been. It flew over the British Car Day event at Bronte park , Burlington/Oakville. I had my Morgan out for the day. When we saw the Lanc. I said , now we can go home. A great weekend.
