Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, in Hamilton, Ontario  is a Canadian aviation museum and has over 30 military jets, propeller-driven aircraft and helicopters on display.

It was a wonderful event and I’m glad I went. Here are some photos for all of you to enjoy.
