Winnipeg Aviation Museum Marking Remembrance Day

By David Klassen

The Western Canada Aviation Museum will be holding its own Remembrance Day activities on Sunday.

A guided tour, titled “Pilots, POWs and Peril,” will begin at 2 p.m. and is devoted to celebrating the lives and accomplishments of many revered Canadian citizens, on the ground, or in the air, who fought and died for our protection and safety. The public will be shown the museum’s new exhibit on “war art,” and the “Secret Agents, Spies and Moon Planes” exhibit.

Experts will also be on hand to help identify mysterious military medals to explain their meaning and significance.

Tours are free with general admission. The museum, located at Hangar T-2, 958 Ferry Road, will be open from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
