 Guy Lombardo's Tempo VII Hydroplane  ?


'Tis the Season to be Jolly


Guy Lombardo's multiple-award-winning Tempo VII hydroplane, built in 1955 and powered by an Allison aircraft engine, has been owned by the City of London since 1983 when it was donated to the City by the late Colonel Tom Lawson.

It is currently on display at London's Jet Aircraft Museum along with the Miss Supertest III hydroplane, immediately northwest of the London International Airport. It is open Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm.

Contact London's heritage planner Don Menard (dmenardATlondon.ca) if you or your organization are interested in displaying the Tempo VII in a public setting for a special short-term event.


LOMBARDO TRIVIA: London-born-and-raised bandleader Guy Lombardo (June 19, 1902- Nov. 5, 1977) never travelled across the bridge named in his honour in London, Ontario, since the bridge never officially opened until Nov. 16, 1978, more than a year after his death.

Guy Lombardo (1902-1977) with his younger sister, Rosemarie Lombardo (1925-2011) in the 1940s. Guy and his brothers in the orchestra actually named their sister Rosemarie, who was born 23 years after Guy.

    Uncle Sam is watching us.

    I don't have a problem with Uncle Sam IF he's watching for the specific purpose of ensuring our safety.
    I suggest he keep an eye on www.altlondon.org for the latest breaking news and views.
    Like for instance, Bove said "keep in your own lane and don't talk about stuff you aren't authorized to talk about"...well I think we are all authorized to talk about these airplanes that are seemingly playing chicken in the air. They might crash and kill somebody. I saw one today, just over Oxford Street by Cherryhill, around 1:P:M and it was so low I could've yelled "hey you, get in your own lane" and the pilot would've heard me...of course I do have a very loud voice.

    I know what you're talking about. A friend of mine was in the Dragon Races at Fanshawe park last Saturday. She said that while she and others were paddling the boat out in the lake, this large passenger plane flew over them. She said it was about 30 feet above them when it flew over the boat. She said she could see people through the windows of the plane and she waved to them.

    She thought the plane was way too low to the ground, too.
