    Two years ago, my lovely understanding wife and I went
    to Windsor, Canada to visit friends....Now my friend knew
    that I have this passion for military museums...So she said
    that nearby was one of the best...As we are driving towards it,
    off in the distance is the sound of piston aircraft engines...And as
    I watch here comes a Lanc:shock: flying on approach to the field
    we are heading to...I start snapping pics with my 35mm ...And telling all
    in the car that what they are seeing is a rarity...By chance we are there as
    this Lanc is returning from Toronto:D :shock: :D

    I will download the pics of this Lanc and the rest of the shots tomorrow

    you poor guys I see it every nice Saturday as its standard route is few laps over the house I wish they would swap it with the Catalina whose route takes it over Toronto . The one is taken from my back yard the other from the place I help out at . Unfortunately I said I'll get another pic but I didn't
