Museum 30th Anniversary Souvenir Book
In 1991, the Alberta Aviation Museum Association partnered with like-minded aviation groups and successfully campaigned the City of Edmonton to preserve Blatchford Field’s historic Hangar 14. Their proposal established the building as the permanent home for a new aviation museum and the rest… is history!
When the Association moved into Hangar 14 in 1991, they had one aircraft, and big dreams. Today, the museum’s collection has grown to three dozen aircraft, and we remain committed to sharing Blatchford’s aviation stories and shining a spotlight on Edmonton as a window to the world. 2021 marks a special chapter for the museum as it commemorates 30 years in Hangar 14 – the last remaining double-long, double-wide hangar built for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan during the Second World War. To celebrate, the museum is releasing a special anniversary souvenir book.
Alberta Aviation Museum – Thirty Years of Progress is the perfect memento for families and aviation enthusiasts to celebrate the museum’s evolving stories, people, and exhibits. With nearly 100 pages to explore, the book will transport readers through time, exploring Blatchford Field’s rich aviation history through detailed articles on the aircraft on display and some notable individuals. It is a true testament to Alberta’s tenacious aviation spirit!
The book is set to be launched in conjunction with the museum’s Open Cockpit Day on September 25th. Pre-orders copies are on sale now for $29.95 and will be available for pick-up at the museum on the day or immediately following its official launch. Be the first in queue to receive this special piece of aviation history!
