Prop planes coming to #Toronto Airshow 2013

Media day at Billy Bishop City Centre Airport gave me a chance to get up close to the prop driven contributions to tomorrow's launch of the 64th annual Canadian International Airshow. The Great War Flying Museum's World War I biplane and Red Baron's three wing triplane look quite dangerous for their time, but they would be hard pressed to last a few seconds against a modern Sea Harrier.

The practice allowed the pilots a chance to fly their program and get used to the tight airspace available between the city's edge and the adjacent runways of Billy Bishop where private flights continued landing and taking off during the entire show.
