CF-100 Aircraft (HANDOUT)

The Western Canada Aviation Museum is throwing their own workshop on Sunday afternoon to show off an aircraft being refurbished.

Visitors will get a behind-the-scenes look at the banging, smashing, polishing, sewing and glueing that takes place by the restoration crew to bring a historic aircraft back to life.

The public will be able to talk with the restoration crew, peek into the museum’s library and archives to see rare treasures, and jump in the cockpit of a F-86 Sabre, Beech Musketeer and CF-100 Voodoo Simulator.

The restoration crew is made up entirely of volunteers with the love and knowledge of aircraft.

Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for museum members and free for children two and under.

The workshop runs from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
