BAK's favorite -- Warplane Museum

Jump to last reply

I'm going to try to remember to recommend a favorite destination for visitors to Canada this year, one suggestion per month.

Canadian Warplane Heritage (seems to be missing the last word in its name, but anyway...) is near the Hamilton Ontario airport, and is a giant hanger filled with warplanes going back as far as World War I. There are some planes people can sit in, and even little kids --5, 6 bigger -- will have a good time. You're close enough to touch the planes -- no ropes keeping you away.

Depending on the season, some of the plane go flying, and depending on your budget, you can even take rides. Volunteers are often former air force members who know the planes very well indeed..

There's a USSR jet trainer there just like the ones my dog's friend Lola's owner used to fly back in Russia, and a Canso just like the one my father flew in when he came to see me for the first time. And a Lancaster that still flies.

Less than an hour from downtown Toronto, more or less on the way to Niagara Falls, well worth a few hours. I used to be a member when my son was 9-13.

Next suggestion in early February.
