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.

LONDON MAJORS BASEBALL
London Majors' pitcher Zack Breault signed by Toronto Blue Jays organization
LONDON MAJORS' right-handed pitcher Zack Breault (pictured right) signed with the Toronto Blue Jays and will be reporting to spring training in 2011 in Dunedin, Florida.
“I got invited to a workout at the Rogers Centre and signed there on Monday,” says Breault. “I did enjoy my season with the Majors, both on and off the field it is a great league to play in,” he added.
Breault is the club's ninth player to be signed since new ownership in 2006, behind fifteenth-rounder David Naradowski, who was picked by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2009.
"Zack has lots of talent and is very coachable," says Roop Chanderdat, co-owner, general manager and field manager. "He has the potential to do well at the next level,” he adds.
Breault just completed his rookie year with the Majors. He was the number two starter on the team with three wins in the regular season, going 3-3, and he posted a 4.28 earned run average in 8 appearances, 7 of which were starts.
He was also selected to play in the inaugural New-Era All-Star Classic, an event which featured the top players from the IBL and the La Ligue de Baseball Senior Elite du Quebec (LBSEQ) in Ottawa a couple weeks ago.
“I believe that the caliber of players within the league helped me grow up on the mound and really brought out my competitiveness and fire which will hopefully help at the next level. The coaches and owners were very approachable and helpful with anything they could provide,” says Breault.
“Roop for sure was an influence. He treats his players well day in and day out whether you made three errors the night before or got shelled on the mound if you were on the bus you were a Major, a part of the team. Personally I think that Roop helped my game become well rounded as a baseball player not just a pitcher, understanding the game from all aspects. When the opportunity came up Roop had no problem putting my name out there (all star game and the workout with the Blue Jays and Padres). I actually called him for advice with who I should sign with, the Jays or Padres and he said listen to both sides and get the best deal for you.”
