June 29th, 2011 | Father’s Day 2011: Hamilton Air Show

Hahah I wasn’t kidding when I said we’re a family of photographers. We all had camera’s strapped around our necks (mine was obv taking this photo)

For Father’s day, we did the same thing we have done every year as far back as I can remember… go to the Air Show!!! I grew up going to them, and I love them! This year, we went to the Hamilton Air Show. It was it’s first time running in 10 years and was the one we went to most as kids. It made it a little more special because this was the one that we always went to as children with my dad. Amongst our favourite, as always, they had the Lancaster and Spitfire flying. Pictures!!

WWI Planes

I loveee the pin-up artwork on some of the planes. The “Memphis Belle” was the one that was used in the actual movie (The real one is still undergoing restoration) You can learn more about the Memphis Belle here, it’s really interesting!

The planes above are the North American Harvards, Douglas AD-4 Skyraider, Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress (Memphis Belle) and the North American B-25J Mitchell (Hot Gen)

The Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association & Aerobatic Team

Nanchang CJ-6A, Flown by Daniel Fortin. This guy was crazy! So many cool tricks!
Hope everyone had a great Father’s Day!! & also….

    That looks like a ton of fun! I haven’t been to an air show since I was very little.  It was a military base so they really only had military planes but I loved the blue angels and the stealths. So neat!

      I love the stealths! There was supposed to be one flying but it didn’t end up coming.

    This is so sweet! My dad used to always take me to the air show when it was in town! It’s nice to see others with the same tradition.
