Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting special anniversary flight abroad DC-3 from CYOW Ottawa/Macdonald–Cartier International Airport located 5.5 nautical miles  south of downtown Ottawa to CYTZ located on the Toronto Islands south-west of downtown Toronto for purpose of celebrating 80th anniversary of 1940 to 1943 use of CYTZ as Norwegian air force training base where it was known as little Norway or little Norge.

Word of advice when you get ready for final approach to runway 26 is to watch out for tall chimneys of The Hearn power stations
