The B.C. Aviation Museum held its annual open house on Saturday, Aug. 4.

The event included sightseeing flights, parachute jumping, military re-enactors, model ships, remote controlled vehicles and a fire truck display from the Victoria International Airport.

The highlight of the show for many was the unveiling of the fully restored Second World War Harvard trainer, which was caringly worked on by volunteers for five years.
