Classic Wings - Bob Hanson

Bob Hanson has a passion for flying and he wants to let you in on one of the best kept aviation secrets in the country. Bob is the owner of Classic Wings—a private collection of fully-operational vintage aircraft, spanning decades of aviation history. His planes, jets, and helicopters are showcased in a large hangar at the Russ Beech airport in Smiths Falls.
Though not a public museum, Bob welcomes tours by appointment. He hopes his collection will honour pilots who served in World War 2 and inspire future generations to appreciate and respect Canada's aviation history. When not flying, Bob is an entrepreneur, operating his Perth-based business. Cord King builds firewood processing equipment for customers around the world.
