Default Great Lake shores, low and slow.

Recently I did something I have never done before. It was a beautiful day here in South Western Ontario so in keeping with the Corona Virus self isolation I decided to go for a long slow and low flight to explore the north shore of Lake Erie from Long Point to the Welland Canal.
This was such a great experience that I continued the adventure north along the Welland Canal across the Niagara Peninsula to the St Catherine airport where I picked up the south shoreline of Lake Ontario. I followed it to the Burlington Skyway before heading back to Kitchener.
Right after I landed back at Kitchener I managed to catch the landing of a Chartright Global Express. In one photo it looks lige he put it right on the top of their own hangar..

A small community on Long Point in Lake Erie.



Entrance to the Harbour at Port Dover.






125kts @ 7.7gph. 2000ft or approx. 1500Ft. above the lake. The red colour on the map screen shows rising terrain in NY State..

A typical "Laker" going through the canal.




A good look at one of the 8 Locks on the Welland Canal. Locks #1 thru #7 being 766 feet (233.5 m) long and 80 feet (24.4 m) wide.
