CYND:  N45 31 17 W75 33 51

Based at the Ottawa / Gatineau Airport, this museum is one of the most unique in Canada, not only because of its collection which is quite impressive but also because all the aircrafts fly !

The owner Mr. Potter, organizes Open House Days which make the joy of the local residents and attract also a lot of pilots from all over eastern Canada.  A visit to the museum's Web Site is also a must !
