Years ago, fairy tales all began with, "Once upon a time." Now we know they all began with, "If I'm elected."

I've taken a bit of a hiatus from photography the last couple of years, but I will be attending the Quinte show next weekend with my camera in hand.

Hope to post some photos soon thereafter in this thread, if that's okay?

At work here in Kingston this morning and Lancaster and B-25 Mitchell flew overhead.. very impressive and unfortunately, I was slow in getting my cell phone out and was unable to get a shot.

I was on one of the higher floors of a hotel on Queen St W in Toronto, when I heard a very distinctive Rolls-Royce Merlin rumble.  I got to the window in time to see the Lanc fly by.

My first thought was "I don't remember doing hallucinogenic drugs this morning....."

I didn't know we had a flying Lancaster in Canada  (I now know there are two in the world -- Mt Hope.... and over there  where they're focused on BREXIT).  It was awesome.  I'd still love to see a Mosquito flying (apparently there's one)..... and a Lysander, just 'cause I'm a bit of a freak.  ;D

Canadian Warplane Heritage museum (same museum that owns the Lancaster) owns and flies a Lysander. Unfortunately you won't see it flying in the near term,  a few scratches need to be buffed out!

Yesterday the Lanc flew over town twice, once mid-morning and the other time around noon. Got some pictures but no good when you enlarge them.

Did you get a shot of the F-22/P-51 formation?  Beyond seeing how the Raptor could move, I thought that was the highlight of the show.

Just a very rough edit of it so far....hope that you don't mind the quality.

Nice. Thanks.

And for a size comparison folks, the Mustang is actually in the foreground.   :nod:

It's really a beautiful and aesthetically pleasing plane to look at...and loud.  Awesomely loud. :)

You probably didn't see me waving at you then either as I was in the B-25. It was a memorable experience.

Maybe this belongs in the WTF thread...

Are they trying to take the last bit of fun out of the Ex?

Is it time to rethink Toronto's air show?
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/programs/metromorning/air-show-trauma-1.3747293
'Any time a plane flew over, I was paralyzed,' says local filmmaker after returning from a conflict zone

It's the sound of the city this weekend: the roar of planes overhead as the Canadian International Air Show features vintage and modern planes in aerial displays. It's been running since 1949, and draws thousands of people to the waterfront.

"One of the largest air shows in North America!"

Summary:  "I'm making a film on supposed immigrant/refugee reactions to the air show;  not situating the estimate, but there's clearly  a problem between taking in refugees and 'this sort of affront' to their experiences.  I'm not saying we need to change on their behalf.... since all clear-thinking individuals will come to that obvious conclusion. 

So can I get some free, anti-military advertising for my project from the CBC?"      :boring:

Looks like Wikipedia has a bit of an editing war going on!  :)

Canadian International Air Show

"The Canadian International Air Show (CIAS) is an annual horror show that has been tormenting local residents and ruining the last long weekend of the summer at the conclusion of the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) in Toronto since 1949"
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Canadian_International_Air_Show&action=history

In Toronto, the death rattle of summer is marked in an unusual way. It’s signalled by a crescendo of rumbling overhead, a whooshing sound of jets too close for comfort, sending vibrations throughout the city and cats clawing up walls. It’s the Canadian International Air Show.
https://nowtoronto.com/news/think-free-blog/10-people-who-hate-the-goddamn-toronto-air-show/

I live in the High Park area, so after all these years, I'm pretty used to it. The animals in the Park and the HP Zoo may get a bit skittish. :)

Lived in High Park area a long while ago, also worked as part of the CF exhibit at the CNE less long ago. This type of article appears annually and after a "short" news cycle fades until next year. No one beyond the "odd" person who lives in the area or someone who has an agenda of some description really cares. Those that espouse the thought that the immigrant community feels something should, maybe, ask that community. This years show was small, as compared to past years with their Vulcans etc going past and the odd accident, so what's the problem? Is one of "feelings" or one of "I" have an opinion and will try to impose it on the rest of the world? :facepalm:

I was born at St. Joes. They were having the CIAS even back then. Get used to it, or go to the cottage!  :)

See Reply #17.

In recent years, exhibits have been shutting down early.

Never did an exhibit, but worked a lot of OT at the Ex over the years  decades.

Not 2016, but another season of whininess has begun....
Quote
CF-18 flyby spooks Montrealers
Event was organized for Alouettes' home opener, but not everyone was au courant


"It scared the heck out of me," he said.

Peters's wife and two young children were on their way home during the flyby. He said the noise caused her to let go of the stroller with the 22-month-old inside, so she could move over and protect the three-year-old. The stroller rolled away and hit a Bixi stand, then toppled over. ::)

Everyone is fine, Peters said, save for a few tears shed in the aftermath. But Peters plans to call the city and possibly contact the Alouettes to put an end to these kinds of events.

"It shouldn't be happening, not with people in town with PTSD, refugees coming from war zones, it could trigger all sorts of trauma," he said.
      :not-again:

Some of those refugees probably look up and think, "Where were those planes when our villages were being razed?"

Straight from the UN page on Peacekeeping:

Quote
UN Peacekeeping is guided by three basic principles:

Consent of the parties;
Impartiality;
Non-use of force except in self-defence and defence of the mandate.

http://www.un.org/en/peacekeeping/operations/peacekeeping.shtml

As Loachman says, blue-helmet peacekeeping cannot be like Afghanistan, as we definitely did NOT have the consent of the Taliban and we used force for more than just self-defence.

Perhaps we should paint our CF-18's baby blue with UN markings for the interdiction of hostile aircraft. Our pilots could wag a finger and shout "STOP" over 121.5 MHz.

The pilots would have to wear blue helmets also to give credibility to their polite request.
