News from the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum:

REUNION OF GIANTS, the much-anticipated official Lancaster UK Tour documentary, will be available on Nov. 24, 2015. This 83-minute documentary, available in DVD and Blu-ray formats, covers the historic flight of the CWHM Lancaster, VeRA, as it met its British counterpart, Thumper, the only other surviving flight worthy Lancaster bomber in the world. This production can be pre-ordered from the CWHM gift shop and is being offered at sale prices which end on Nov. 24. See the CWHM website for more information.

A Norseman Mk. V, the CWHM's latest acquisition, arrived at the museum on Sept. 25, 2015. Registered CF-GSR, s/n N29-47, the Norseman was partially donated by Huron Air and Oufitters Ernie and Donna Nicholl. The Norseman delivery began two weeks earlier when the aircraft was ferried on floats from Ignace, ON, to the Orillia seaplane base, where the floats were removed and the wheels installed so the aircraft could land at the museum's base at Hamilton International Airport. Aviation photo journalist Eric Dumigan reports that the airframe and engine are in great condition, and the CWH plans to have the Norseman join the museum's ride program in 2016. Although the airframe never saw RCAF service, the CWH plans to configure and paint the aircraft in RCAF markings when time and funds permit. No decision has been made on which RCAF markings the airframe will carry.
