An unusual sight over Guelph tonight

I was pulling into the grocery store tonight and I could not believe it but there was Ju-52 droning about 1000' overhead. What a sight! It caught everyone's attention. I did a little surfing around and found out it is owned by a European luggage company and it is doing a North American tour. More details can be found here...

Sometimes you just get lucky!

I saw it at Oshkosh. That's one big plane.

Re: An unusual sight over Guelph tonight

That must have been what I saw this evening over Eglinton and Warden in Scarborough at 6PM this evening.

Not much of a noise like a DC-3 produces (drone) but more of a pppppppttttt! (motorboat) sound, then I saw this slab-sided plane overhead but at such an angle that I really couldn't get a good view of it (silver fades into clouds) and only the knock-kneed landing gear was visible and then only momentarily.

First thought was Ford, then Fokker, then settled on Junkers.

Must be here for the CNE airshow, aka the CIAS. The CIAS website doesn't show it as a performer in the airshow, nor does the tour website say anything but Toronto. In fact, the tour website lists Waterloo as the current location.

Have to admit, this is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime moment.

How many of us are going to build one this winter?
