As part of our upgrade the museum, our curator, Lech Lebiedowski, has been replacing the aging displays with ones that better tell the amazing history of aviation in Edmonton.
We have now revamped most of the displays on the east wall of the museum with more modern ones. They explain Blatchford Field’s role in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, the development of commercial aviation on the field, and the role of women in aviation. There is also a new display paying tribute to Pacific Western Airlines, and another celebrating the 80 years of RCMP aviation.
The images here give a glimpse of the new displays, but to fully appreciate them, you will need to drop by the museum and see for yourself.
There is something new to see all the time. Consider a membership to the Alberta Aviation Museum so you don’t miss a thing as we continually improve our displays and exhibits. It’s all part of our efforts to keep Edmonton’s aviation history alive.
