The Bristol Bolingbroke belongs to the Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum at the airport at Brandon Manitoba - approximately 1/2 mile east and one mile north of the location of the Bolly. The museum is dedicated to preserving the memory of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan which trained over 250,000 aircrew and groundcrew for the Allies. The museum is housed in an actual WWII hangar from the plan. The Bolly was fully restored for static display when it was placed at the motel. The museum has an additional 20 aircraft on display of which four are flight-worthy - Harvard, Cornel, Tiger Moth and Stinson - also relics of WWII. The museum also has a number of ground vehicles on display -- crash tender, fuel tender, fire truck, snow plow, staff car, jeep etc. which also are operable. It also has over 25,000 small artifacts of which many are on display. The web site is www.museum.ca. The web site is messy but the museum itself it something to see -- you'll be impressed.
This business is no longer in operation.

Hi, it is spelled Rensselaer.
Great photo Diesel Hello Dan, did the Bel Del start clearing the tracks, and making them useable here yet?
I stopped here last year (just passing through) and there was this lovely little cat that had been born there and hung around. Does anyone know if the cat is still there and ok?
CSI Louisville is in Suite 835 with a great view of the fountain.
