Mo's fly-in is Cancelled this year due to health problems.Jean-Pierre Bonin (friend of Mo and Aviation Event Photographer)
Hi Jean-Pierre: Thanks for letting us know. I'll update the post to reflect that.
Mo's 28th Fly-in cancelledBy Patrick Gilligan, COPAMaurice Prud'Homme has been organizing his ice fly-in on the Ottawa River since 1989, at that time my daughter was 5 years old and I was rebuilding turbine engines at Rolls Royce Canada.Mo has never missed a beat every year doing his annual runs for sponsors, picking up banners, inviting celebrities to attend, printing and distributing his posters, scheduling volunteers and snow plowing, also cooking and serving enormous batches of his famous Chilli to hundreds of fly-in pilots (Maurice was master Chef at the Parliamentary dining room). Unfortunately his famous fly-in is cancelled this year because he will be undergoing heart surgery and will be required to rest for a month or so.Our thoughts are wishing Maurice "Mo" a speedy recovery, COPA National.
Bien désolé d'apprendre que Maurice sera au repos cette année. Bon et prompt rétablissement! Au plaisir de revoir ton fameux sourire!Jacques
