Guests at The Royal Canadian Geographical Society’s annual College of Fellows dinner in November must have felt as if they were soaring. Not only were the dining tables surrounded by 75 aircraft at the Canada Aviation Museum in Ottawa, but astronaut Steve MacLean also transported the audience into space with photos, videos and details of his second spacewalk, in 2006. The event honoured Massey, Gold and Camsell medallists and raised money for the RCGS.
