C.A.R.P. Halton Chapter ZOOM Meeting July 22nd

For our ZOOM community meeting on July 22nd C.A.R.P. Halton Chapter are very pleased to announce that our speakers will be from the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum who will present:

 “A Brief History of the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum and a Virtual Tour of it’s Exhibits”

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum was established in 1972 and over the years has developed a large collection of aircraft memorabilia dating from World War 11 to the present that were flown by the Canadian Military. The museum now has almost 50 aircraft which are displayed in an extensive aviation exhibit gallery.

The museum expects to reopen in mid-July as COVID restrictions are gradually lifted and they cannot wait to once again welcome visitors. In addition to the visitor’s gallery there are many additional attractions. For example, you can experience air combat at the controls of an F-18 Hornet in The Air Combat Flight Simulator. This is not a video game – with live instrumentation and a giant view of the world outside your cockpit it is as close as it gets to the real thing without joining the Air Force!

The museum is well signed and easily accessible from local highways.  It is located on Highway 6 in the community of Mount Hope at the Hamilton International Airport with plenty of free parking for museum visitors.

It truly is one of our local jewels and a must see for tourists and local residents alike.

Our speakers will be – Tim Speed & Hilary Speed

Tim comes by his interest in aviation honestly despite the fact that he is not a pilot and has no military experience. His father was a Navigator in WWII flying Special Operations in a Handley – Page Halifax. Tim first became involved with aviation as an Air Scout while still wearing short pants! He obtained a Business Degree in the United Kingdom and joined British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) after graduating from University. He served as a Station Operations Officer in Dubai, Tokyo and Beirut. He returned to the UK and worked in BOAC’s Air Cargo Division before becoming General Manager of an All-Cargo Airline based at East Midlands Airport.

Later Tim began working for an air freight forwarder. He immigrated to Canada, with his family in 1980. Before retiring he was the CEO of a large air freight and logistics company.

He has been a volunteer Tour Guide, Speaker and Educator at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum since retiring in late 2010.

Hilary Speed came to Canada with Tim after accompanying him to Singapore and Ireland. She obtained a History degree at McMaster University and earned her Teaching Degree at York University.
