HTML tutorial The restoration of our Lynx One Voodoo

Last year (2017) marked the turning point for our rather weathered and badly corroded Lynx One Voodoo. After many years of fighting the elements of the harsh Atlantic Canada weather, she was finally restored to her former glory, ready to stand proud again outside our Museum.

But this restoration project would not have been possible without the hard work, dedication, love and sheer determination of a fantastic team of volunteers from the Royal Canadian Air Force 12 Wing, Shearwater.

And it all started with an e-mail from one Leslie Blair, whose own personal connection to this project really got things going.
