August 28 was a grand time to be at Aviation World in Toronto (YYZ) — the store’s annual customer appreciation day. Hundreds of devotees turned out to take advantage of good across-the-board discounts on books, models, flight simulator paraphernalia and all sorts of other products. Owner Len Neath and staff added to the fun by putting on a super BBQ.
If you live in the GTA or are passing through, you need to visit this amazing “aviation stuff” supermarket. The same goes for the company’s Richmond, BC (YVR) and Chicago (ORD) locations. Check it all out on the web.
Aviation World at YYZ is perfectly located for plane watchers. This was a typical sight on the 28th — a BA Triple Seven swooshing by to touch down seconds later on Runway 24L. So you can bring the whole family out to do the store, then enjoy a steady parade of spectacular planes landing right overhead. A field trip that will not disappoint … Larry
