I am drawn to classic car and aircraft shows.  I marvel at the beauty of these amazing machines.  From shiny and pristine to worn and weathered, vintage automobiles and aircraft offer a nostalgic glimpse back in time.  Their lines, shapes, colours and textures create wonderful photographic opportunities.

North American Harvard Mk4 © Irwin Seidman
Harvard MK4 #436 | ref.no 1748280v20 | On July 9, 2017 (about 2 hours after this photograph was taken), Harvard 436 experienced difficulty while landing at the Wings & Wheels show at Owen Sound Billy Bishop Regional Airport.  The aircraft flipped on landing and sustained damage.  Fortunately nobody was seriously injured in the accident, but the damage was significant and the aircraft is not expected to be restored to airworthiness.  We do however understand that there may be plans underway to restore it cosmetically and look forward to seeing it on display.  (This image represents a photo-pictorialized interpretation of Harvard MK4 # 436.)
