Very cool!  If someone does see them, definitely take pictures. :D

I should keep an eye out for these guys.  If they end up near Vancouver I would definitely make the trip across the lines to see them!

It seems that 'coast to coast' here, as is all too often the case in Canada, doesn't include Newfoundland.  

 

But I did see the Vickers Vimy back in 2005 when they recreated the Alcock-Brown transatlantic flight ... and oddly enough when it flew past, I happened to be on set shooting a CBC drama about the Atlantic Ferry Organisation in WWII!

Well, they should come to Montreal around June 4-8!

If they do, I will take a few photos for our JG1 and ROF pilots in the US and Europe!

 

Cheers,

Gen ;)

That's really neat! The reporter said that to fire the guns, the pilots would have to stand, and fly with their knees? Is that right?  :blink:

To reload, not to fire.
