2019/03/17 Calgary's Hangar Flight Museum
π 2019-03-17 01:01 in Flying, Museums
During a very short trip in Calgary, I went to check out the Hangar Flight Museum on the way back to the airport to fly home. It wasn't a huge museum, but it was my first aviation museum in canada, so that was reason enough to go :)
A very nice volunteer gave me a tour. The whole museum can be done in 1H or so, but I spent a bit longer:

interesting twin boom design, jet exhaust was pointing down, so you couldn't do a static runup without melting the runway :)
