CWHM Lanc 30th Anniversary Flight

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum celebrated a milestone – the 30th anniversary of the first flight of their historic aircraft, following an extensive renovation. 3 decades on, the plane still turns heads wherever it flies. Here’s a look at a special flight to mark the occasion. Video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5JHN4DpfjY
