There is a little known aviation museum out on MacDonald Campus in St. Anne De Bellevue. It is called the Canadian Aviation Heritage Centre.
It is about a 24 minute drive from downtown Montreal and is well worth the drive. There is no entry fee, but they do ask that you make a small donation of $5 or more. Once you have finished your guided tour, you will certainly feel that a donation is certainly warranted.
Our guide was Germain and he had been volunteering at the museum since the summer. All photos were taken with the XP1 and with a max ISO of 6400. They are JPEGs SOOC, with some minor sharpening done.
The museum is a “live” museum, meaning you can go behind the scenes and see where the aircraft are restored, as well as the volunteers at work restoring the aircraft. All the volunteers who work on the aircraft, are retired guys from Canadair, Bombardier, etc.
