6th Annual Wings & Wheels Hertiage Festival

The Canadian Air & Space Museum played host to the 6th annual Wings & Wheels Heritage Festival at Downsview Park, Toronto on May 28-29, 2011.

I had heard that the C-130J Super Hercules was going to make an appearance on Sat morning so I arrived early for the fly in.

Here I am waiting for the big Herc to show up but all that showed up were the birds. I heard later that there were maintenance issues with the Herc that weekend and the fly in was canceled.


So I made way over to the Museum and saw this:



The planes were making their way out of the storage hanger.

The CF-18 made it in later that day.


I never did get any planes flying in that day - it seemed that I left too early and came back too late for the arrivals. Better luck next year.
