Here's the pictures of the Lancaster bomber and the Mosquito bomber currently residing in the Canadian Historic Aircraft Association. Both planes are under restoration with the Lancaster in several large pieces and the mosquito in a more advanced state of restoration at the time and the pictures I took were from Tuesday nights model meet that Richard and I attended. These pictures are just the beginning of the photos coming as Richard and I are going on a guided tour of the entire Lancaster restore at the next meeting in January. It's important to know that this Lancaster was the lead aircraft on April 29th, 1945 that flew the first of many food drops to the Dutch people that were being held and punished for helping liberate a portion of Holland. Several hundred people were being starved and dying daily due to the punishment by the Nazis.

Yep, I'm hoping the heavy snow bands miss me. It's so windy today that I decided not to spend time in the woods. I'm leary of being brained by a wind snapped branch, tree top, or tree.

Sure, please post some Lancaster pics. Nice Fairchild 24, that must be a fun club!

Red Oak leaves and Larch needles are airborne today at my place on this very windy gloomy day. Big "Lake Effect" snowstorm due tomorrow night....

     Yeah, that's right Jeff -  Some Oak trees will go bare between leaf drop and new growth, others push off the old leaves with new ones -  especially the White Oak family  that share the characteristic of evergreen foliage - white oak dropping its leaves in the spring, while the other trees drop theirs in the fall.  "Live oak" or "evergreen oak" is a general term that comes from the fact that evergreen oaks remain green and "live" throughout winter, when other oaks are dormant and leafless.
      Yes - we just started a new model club in Windsor - about 15 guys - talk about "hangar talk"  Wink  -  two of the members are representing balsawood aeromodelers - me and New Builder "Mike" - and both of us come from the "Stick & Tissue" website of balsa aeromodeling enthusiasm.   Cheesy Shocked  I think this coming meeting is "show and tell", as the last one was "introduce yourself" - I think I will bring my 24" Thomas Herr kit "FOKKER D7" to the meeting - and it is a great chance to get inside the Historic Hangar and take pics - I got 45 pics, inside and, out of the newly donated "Fairchild 24" at the last meeting.

The Lancaster is in the Historic Hanger at the Windsor, Ontario airport and is currently under restoration. Richard (Last Woodsman) and I meet there every month with a group of very diversified modelers. I'll take some pictures of the plane tonight and get them posted tomorrow.

Great pics!
Wonder what happened to the Lancaster?

I see there are still some leaves left on the trees, some of those oaks won't drop them until a snow cover arrives.

They don't look like replicas to me. They look like the real thing with engines and armaments removed. They used to have a Lancaster bomber there apparantly.

LATEST PICS OF SPITFIRE AND HURRICANE WED NOV 29 2017

When I  was walking the dog this morning, in Jackson Park, Windsor, Ontario, I noticed that the brilliant low morning sun was splendidly coloring the undersides of the replica Spitfire and Hurricane warplanes' wings, showing their true colors.   I just had to take pictures and share them.  14 pics
