Preview: historic aircraft show in Gatineau, Quebec

Listen to this story
Aviation and history buffs may be interested in events on tap this year from Vintage Wings of Canada. The organization near Gatineau, Quebec has an extensive collection of still-flying, restored planes, including legendary World War II aircraft like the Spitfire, Hurricane and Tiger Moth. Two open house events this year will celebrate classic airplanes. The first is Saturday in Gatineau. Aircraft from the Vintage Wings collection will also appear at this year's air show in Geneseo, NY in mid-July. In May, Lucy Martin toured Vintage Wings of Canada with founder Michael Potter, a pilot and retired executive. Afterwards, she got more personal impressions from Communications Manager Dave O'Malley. That day featured sedate work inside the hanger. But O'Malley says the place is busy this month.
