We are planning a trip to Viking Air Ltd.  to see the construction of the new Twin Otters.  There is also a possibility of going out on the apron to see the CL-215.  ( Any participants in this will have to provide by March 15 ‘Name and Date of Birth’ to be pre-cleared by CSIS ).  The Viking tour will dovetail with a visit to The Hangar Flight Museum (formerly known as the Aerospace Museum of Calgary).  There will be a day trip to the Bomber Command Museum in Nanton, with engine runs, four Merlins on a Lancaster and a Bristol Hercules, tours and lunch.
Book your airfare now or gas up your car, we look forward to seeing you in Calgary this year.  You may even wish to come early or stay after the convention to visit other attractions like The Military Museums (also Cold War Museum), Calgary Zoo (pandas and lemurs), Telus Spark Centre, Heritage Park, Glenbow Museum, The Reynolds Museum (in Wetaskiwin), Edmonton, Banff, Lake Louise, shopping – (no provincial sales tax!)
