Default Hamilton Warplane Museum

www.warplane.com

A little dark inside so had to use iso800 to get reasonable shutter speed with a bit of dof. Seems ok to me anyway. volunteer staff earn flight hours by talking with visitors. so, they love to talk. and they know a lot. i went outside and on the observation deck with them. two very kind gentlemen. one's father flew in wwII. all the prop planes you see there actually fly. it's one of the points they're very proud of. apparently, not all museums can say that. and the lancaster is one of two flyable in the world. it went to b.c. earlier this year.

Exposures turned out nicely for indoor lighting. Nice white balance, good compositions. Sounds like a facinating place to visit.

Wow, what a treasure trove in #2. I can identify Canadian DH Tiger Moth, a Fairley Firefly, a Fouga Magistar, several Harvards (AT-6 in US), a Crane (Bamboo Bomber, AT-17, UC-78, T-50), a Canadian DHC Chipmunk and part of Catalina Mk5. Thanks for sharing.

Ah yes, a Chipmunk with the more common greenhouse canopy. Nice photo of a Lysander as well. My dad had some time in those as a utility pilot for a fighter wing in England.
