Around The Airport
Eastern approach rwy26

Carmichael Drive runs south and east of the airport. It should be possible to follow this road that leads past the approach of runway 26.

Bombardier hangars

Along Airport road you pass a preserved black CF-101B Voodoo that is at the crossroad with Airport way. Continue onward and you will reach the former CF ramps and hangars that are now occupied by Bombardier. They built CL-415s here and do some rework on DHC-8. From their parking lot you can have a look through the hangardoor window.

Southeast side ramp view

Further down Airport road some more ramps and aircraft are visible.

Terminal area

Before you reach the terminal there is a small parking lot from were you can look into the Bombardier hangars on teh other side of rwy 18/36, provided they are open of course. Driving further down might yield the odd helicopter.
