Looking for something fun to do with the family on this lovely day off?

The Western Canada Aviation Museum is welcoming a vintage Boeing Stearman aircraft, used by the Royal Canadian Air Force in the 1940s.

The aircraft was restored by Vintage Wings of Canada, and will be available to the public to sit inside the cock, inspect its design and get a feel for the controls.
