An excellent display of past and present aircraft that fought forest fires and rescue missions in Northern Ontario. The displays are exactly how they were with stories of rescues and fire fighting techniques from over the years. Highly recommend.

This was informative, interesting, interactive experience. Movies were intersting and worth seeing, Great to hear about the part Canadians played in combating forst fires. As a bonus there is a fantastic display honouring our Canadian female astronaut. WOW.
