Allan Snowie admits his goggles did “mist up” on his first pass over the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in a First World War replica bi-plane ahead of the recent 100th anniversary of the pivotal battle. Realizing many Canadians share his esteem for the brave aviators that took to the skies above Northern France in 1917, he and his squad plan to fly a much longer mission here at home.

Ten pilots will fly four reproduction Nieuport 11 fighters from coast-to-coast, stopping along the way to give the public a modern glimpse of The Great War. The journey is expected to take about six months. The crew aims to land in Ottawa on Canada Day before continuing across the Prairies towards the Pacific coast.

Any non-Flash dependent movies? Sounds like a cool plan :)
