"Tour Descriptions
Vintage Wings of Canada is a private aviation museum (founded by philanthropist Michael Potter) that owns and operates many classic aircraft, most notably various Allied World War II era Aircraft. Most aircraft in the collection are in flying condition and are frequently flown. The museum is located in a 23,000 sq ft hangar that was designed to resemble a wartime military hangar.
SOPFEU: Every year in Quebec, over 800 fires burn hundreds of square kilometres of forest. The forest fire fighting fleet of CL-215 and CL-415 water bombers along with helicopters equipped with water buckets are headquartered at Maniwaki airport and a tour of the facility has been arranged for tour participants.
Hydro Quebec Visitor Centre: The main control centre for Hydro Quebec is located at Rouyn-Noranda. Learn about the production of electricity and how the control centre here directs transmission of energy from the hydraulic generating stations to consumption centres. See and hear the “echoes of a great river” via a multimedia presentation highlighting the Ottawa River.
Science North: Enjoy such exhibits as: Wings Over The North: A 4D Bush Plane Adventure that incorporates 3D film technology with special effects seating that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat; Also - Butterfly Gallery, featuring hundreds of tropical butterflies and dozens of flowering, fragrant plants in a glass-enclosed environment attached to the Science Centre. Watch butterflies emerge from pupae and take a close look through powerful magnifiers.

Hanover – Phil has arranged a spectacular brunch, fuel discounts and gifts from community businesses and local municipalities (you have to go to Hanover to receive the goody bag). Phil also has a scenic bus tour planned to showcase the Walkerton and Hanover area."
