This thread was created in due to the Meeting a VIP thread in the Events sub forum. So here are the Sault Ste Marie Ontario Canada Bushplane Museum shots taken way back in 2009.

I'll have to find the thread I made last year and link to it. The Bush Plane Museum odds a great place to visit.

VERY cool!  :tu:  Let's see.... There's a Beaver, an Otter, a Norseman, a Fokker Trimotor  :o , an H-47, and a Stoof!  I'm guessing the Tracker was a water bomber.  Stoof = Grumman S2F/S-2 Tracker.  Looks like a museum I'd  :drool: just passing by!


EDIT: Just looked at the link, and I was correct on the aircraft I identified.  I'm such a nerd at times.....

Tiger Moth, Sea King, Herky Birds, a Texan (Excuse me, Harvard  ;) ), Alpha Jet, very cool.  :tu:  Is that a Jet Provost or a Tudor in the one pic?  :think:  Lovely pics so far guys.  All I have to contribute right now is a crappy cellphone pic.  But they built 18,482 of these, and only two remain flyable.....



That's a B-24J Liberator flying over my store back in September.  The most produced US combat aircraft ever, and so few are left even on display......  My brothers and I are planning a trip to several museum ships in the area over the next two months.  First up on the 24th is the USS New Jersey.  Next on the list is the USS Intrepid......

It is a Tudor.  I haven't seen the Snow Birds perform in years, but they put on quite a show!

Wow, 18,480 are no longer air worthy, that's crazy, and a shame.

I have to say that it is one of the coolest aircraft I've ever seen.  It's making its way from Belize to Israel and just stopped for a re-fuek.  A small group got off and had a couple of pics taken, and they all looked absolutely frozen!  Meanwhile I'm standing outside in a tshirt thinking how beautiful and warm it was!  :D

Any more picture of the C-130J? I think they are the most useful plane for our country anyways :)

Sorry if there are duplicates, and if some are not C-130's, doing this quickly from small thumbnails while trying to cook supper.  :ahhh

Sorry about the shaky vids.  I recorded these while on the forklift.  Yes, in the second video it is backing up, I didn't know they could do that!

Here's a different C-130. From what I've read there's talk that it's a CIA plane, but I don't know if I'd believe that or not.

Interesting.  A quick search shows that Prescott specializes in "non-scheduled" cargo delivery....  On a less spooky note, yesterday I made a donation to a group of ex-Marine pilots and ground crew that have restored an old Sikorsky H-34.  It's flyable, and they take it to airshows and such.  Maintaining this sucker is a chore, especially since a lot of the guys who do it were last actually trained on these machines back in the early '60's......

Yeah, I've read a few different sites that say they have been used to illegally transport prisoners.  :ahhh

Wow, an airworthy H-34.  :ahhh  I bet it's quite the job keeping that old girl functioning.  Cool to hear that there are some guys keeping one going though.
