First video. Short and sweet



Now if you'll excuse me while I go and have a long sorrowful crying session with my pillow.

 Free film will honour a bomber named Vera

"Reunion of Giants" follows a 70-year-old Avro Lancaster bomber as it travels to the United Kingdom from the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton. It will be screened for free at select theatres on Remembrance Day.

Hamilton's Lancaster is the star of a new film that will be shown free at Cineplex Entertainment theatres across the country on Remembrance Day.

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum announced the deal this week saying details about participating theatres will be released in September.

The film called "Reunion of the Giants" is about the bomber known as Vera's epic journey to the United Kingdom last year to take part in a series of air shows alongside the world's only other airworthy Lancaster. That one is owned by the Royal Air Force.

Production of the film by Suddenly SeeMore Productions Inc. and Highway Entertainment is continuing.

A DVD release is planned for late November and negotiations are continuing that would see the film shown on television, a spokesperson for the museum said.

Today at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum they had a showing of the Reunion of Giants.



In attendance was Leon Evans and Dave Roeher from the CWHM. Both Lancaster Pilots.
Morgan Elliott from Suddenly Seemore, the producer of the movie.
The gentlemen holding the microphone is Bob Pearson, the pilot of The Gimli Glider.

In the audience was the pilot-in-command of the 450 SQN CH-147D Chinook which moved the Lancaster in 1979 to the CWHM.



Needless to say lots of interesting x-talk.
