Just got back from 809’s March Break trip to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Mount Hope. Everyone, staff included, learned some very cool facts about these incredible aircraft. Did you know that Canadian-built Rolls-Royce Merlin engines have an opposite spin to their British counterparts? We didn’t. Something about driving on opposite sides of the road, maybe?
Here are our cadets in front of the museum’s iconic Supermarine Spitfire Mark XVIe.
