Plagued by bad weather on Saturday, almost half of the performers listed on the website did not show up, making the fifteen Dollar event fairly overpriced. A visit to the excellent museum was included, although entrance fees for the latter are normally only six Dollars. Views from outside the fence are quite good at Rockcliffe and many people decided to avoid paying the fee. Vintage Wings of Canada from nearby Gatineau (Que.) provided many of the aircraft present. Hopefully the rally will survive, as frequent free admission open houses are organized by Vintage Wings of Canada right across the river...
