Throughout September, go on a guided tour of Workhorses of the North at the Western Canada Aviation Museum!
While many of today’s aircraft are sleek and sophisticated, many of Canada’s early aircraft had no such allure. The workhorses of history worked hard for a living. The museum’s collection includes several historically significant aircraft that were flown hard, bringing cargo of all shapes and sizes to remote northern communities with no roads or runways. Some aircraft were retrieved from the bottoms of lakes or the sides of mountains and have been painstakingly restored to showroom condition. Others are on display in their retirement splendour – dented, patched and pranged, souvenirs of a career in Canada’s relentless terrain.
Tours are free with paid admission. Always free for members.
Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
