The first event of the year for the Museum sales crew and flying fleet went like clockwork. Three of the flying collection were on hand to show off the Museum's unique ability in Western Canada to provide a live, flying glimpse into aviation's past.

 More on the Fleet Canuck story

 This week the Canuck was re-united with its donor - Hank Koehler. Hank bought the aircraft in poor condition and donated it to the Museum. It has been a long-time restoration effort by Museum volunteers. As recorded earlier, the Canuck is flying again. Now the donor and aircraft have been re-united. As more flight time is accumulated, Museum members will be able to fly in the Canuck and hopefully Hank will be one of the first.
