As you start your day, remember your time on the Toronto Island - or stepping into an airplane to fly on another adventure!

in 1918, Billy Bishop scores five victories over the Western Front. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
William Avery (Billy) Bishop was Canada’s top flying ace of the First World War, and was officially credited with 72 victories. During the Second World War, he played an important role in recruiting for the Royal Canadian Air Force and promoting the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He is pictured here in a Nieuport aircraft of the Royal Flying Corps in 1917. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I..... have no idea what I’m really doing in my life... hours, days, weeks, months past by and I don’t really know where I’m going and doing. I miss being downtown by the lake, I used to come down here before my overnight shifts, the stillness and calm of the lake just had an effect on me. I’m still here, struggling as usual.
I have the coolest job! The other day, I got to take part in the most fun shoot ever with @teamornge
I rode in a HELICOPTER for the first time and also got to work with a great crew of paramedics and pilots who showed me the ins and outs of saving lives via air transport. The best part of the day was avoiding rush hour traffic by getting flown right back into Billy Bishop Airport (and laughing at everyone stuck on the DVP) 😛😆
