Today was the grand opening of the new clubhouse at the Smiths Falls Flying Club. A surprisingly large number of aircraft flew in for the event, including this rare Noorduyn Norseman from Alberta. The Norseman is a Canadian designed bush aircraft that first flew in 1935, and was produced until 1959. Approximately 20 are still in service. Note how the ailerons droop when the flaps are down, to lower the stall speed.

A Tiger Moth and Harvard flew in from the Vintage Wings collection, and their Corsair did a couple of circuits and low approaches, but I was quite disappointed that it didn't land.
