On Tuesday, October 11th the Museum was featured on CityTV's Breakfast Television. We had a terrific time showing off our volunteers and aircraft. Despite a little rain we were able to get the Harvard II up in the air for a quick demo and push the Cabin outside for an engine run-up.
The day started in the wee hours of the morning. The Hangar doors were opened to the darkness outside on what was a chilly and wet fall morning in Langley. The weather wouldn't dampen the mood and the end result was a fun-filled morning with the crew from CityTV followed by business as usual at the museum.
