CF100 in Lee Park (2nd photo)



Here's the CF100 "Canuck" plane that was the subject of the plaques from yesterday's photo. The "Canuck" was an all weather high altitude long range interceptor.

This plane was restored by Project Flanders, Robert D. Studholme, Gord Robinson. (To answer any questions, no this is not Ned Flanders but rather a reference to Flanders Fields in Belgium where many Canadian perished during the First World War) .

In this photo you can see the soccer pitch lights that were reflections in yesterday's photo.

Love the way you tie the two photos together to give a better sense of the geography. Unique.

I often think these smaller planes would be terrificc to fly. men and their toys again! But then, recall all the men on Flanders fields and our terrible losses there. Thanks for stopping by, I havn't coped with surfing the net lately.
