Aviation buffs will have the chance to pick up pieces of history at the Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada this weekend.
The museum is opening its doors on Saturday for the first ever summer Fly Market. Surplus items from the museum’s archives and restoration areas will be for sale, including aircraft parts, books, magazines, artwork, models and retired museum displays.
Items will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors will also be able to climb on board the Vickers Viscount and Musketeer aircraft.
The family-friendly event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and also features arts and crafts, including a dress-up and photo-op station.
The museum was the scene on Tuesday for a royal visit by Prince Edward and his wife, Sophie.
