Residents of Hamilton, Ontario (about an hour west of Toronto) were watching the skies on Saturday as the city’s own Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum hosted its annual air show. A full roster of vintage fighters and bombers, stuntplanes and even some modern day Canadian Forces aircraft thrilled a crowd of thousands. The highlight of the event for many was a fly past of some legendary (and rare) flying machines from the Second World War: One of the only two flying Lancasters on earth, a recently restored De Havilland Mosquito, a pair of Hawker Hurricanes and a Supermarine Spitfire. Military History Now was on hand to snap a few pics of the event. We hope you’ll enjoy them. We’ve also added some eye-popping videos of the air show that only just hit Youtube in the past few hours. The show continues Sunday. Click here for more information.
