Canadian Heritage Warplane Museum Outing Sunday September 18, 2016

Our first outing for the club 2016-17 year will be a visit to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, located at 9280 Airport Road in Mount Hope,
on Sunday September 18, 10 A.M. This will be an ideal time to visit as some of the aircraft should be outside providing more room inside the hangar
for our tripods and allowing better points-of-view. We will be registering as a group in order to take advantage of the group admission rate of $10
for adults and seniors. In addition, this arrangement includes a guide and access to some airplanes. The café will provide the venue for socializing.
It is not expensive and has a nice view outside.
We will need attendance of 10 or more members to take advantage of the group rate. Please advise Ron Savoline at ronsav@cogeco.ca if you plan to attend.

Following are some of Bob Melnyk's overall and detail images to give you an idea of the possibilities available on this outing.
