2007 Niagara Falls, Ontario Airshow Warbirds
June 8-10, 2007
Gives a good view of Canadian military aviation history.  Great change of pace from the packaged US shows.  This is done at the former RCAR field that is now owned by the Russell Group, which is still a grass field.  One could be within 25 feet of the Spitfire, Hurricane and ME-109 when they started up, taxied out, and then came back in and shut down.  This is small show that is held in a confined area, but it brings a closeness not found in many of the larger shows today.
Engine photos are of Hurricane and cockpit photos are Spitfire.
