Canadian Spitfire Update

Ladies and Gentlemen Aviators

There are those of you who may think that we are just an aviation history story service, but in fact, Vintage Wings of Canada has, for the past ten years, operated the 16 historic vintage aircraft of the Michael U. Potter collection from our hangar in Gatineau, Quebec. Underway here are three world-class restoration projects—a Hawker Fury, Hawker Hurricane Mk XII and a Supermarine Spitfire Mark IX, known as the Roseland Spitfire. After 16 years, the Mark IX is now very close to completion, with its first flight likely to be before end of the summer. For the latest on its rebuild status, click here.
