CNE 2007

Yet another of our habits is to bicycle down close to the Canadian National Exhibition each year to watch the airshow.  An interesting theme this year was to have planes of different vintages flying together.

First up is a WWII vintage Mustang, a late 70s designed F-16 'Fighting Falcon' (or 'Viper' to the pilots) and a monstrous twenty-first century F-22 'Raptor'.

Then there was the late 30s Harvard (I think) and the F-18 Hornet.

Hornet in quite the high 'angle of attack' to keep lift?

We usually picnic by the National Yacht Club.

Some other folks brought their own, very different, bottle opener.
