    Default Mosquito, Tiger Moth factory slated for demolition

    Hi All,

    Forgive me if this has already been posted, but I couldn't find it in a search.

    In the ongoing saga of the Canadian Air and Space Museum, the current management have decided to bulldoze the historic DeHavilland building where 2.500 Mosquito bombers and Tiger Moths were built during the war.

    They are planning to build new hockey rinks, even though there are several already in the area.

    Full story is here:

    Whoops, by management, I meant the operators of the federal park site, where the museum is located - the museum's landlords. The museum's holdings, which includes several heritage aircraft and a full-scale model of the Avro Arrow, are being unceremoniously mothballed in the middle of several restorations, including a Lancaster.
