What a fantastic day! I was in Brampton today doing a book signing at the Great War Flying Museum. I must say that the staff that run this event are top notch! Friendly, helpful and put out 100% to entertain all visitors. This is an annual show and one worth checking out next year. It is always on the first Sunday after Labour Day weekend.
I asked them if I could sit in the two planes from WW1…one that was fashioned after the famous Red Baron (Manfred von Richthofen) and the other after our Canadian hero Billy Bishop. Since working on the Vimy book, I have learned so much about these two men. 2 of the artillery soldiers talk about the Red Baron in their diary entries.
