Just in time to celebrate Blatchford Field’s 90th Anniversary, we have a new and very significant aircraft on display.
G-CYYG is a De Havilland DH60 Cirrus Moth, built in 1928, just one year after the creation of the airfield. It was one of the first aircraft operated by the Edmonton Aero Club, which is now the Edmonton Flying Club.
We are delighted to have this historic aircraft on display and thank the Reynolds Alberta Museum for making the long-term loan possible. We also thank the museum’s skilled team who brought the airplane from Wetaskiwin to Edmonton and completed the complex assembly.
Be among the first to see this beautiful aircraft as we celebrate Blatchford’s 90 years of making aviation history in Edmonton. The event runs Saturday June 24, from 10 am to 4 pm.
