Museum tour

How time passes

We know we’re all getting old – even though we don’t like to admit it – when the aircraft we flew as pilots or worked on as engineers are being put out to pasture and into museums to be restored. Here’s information on a couple of museums that are working on the restoration of aircraft formerly owned and operated by Viking Helicopters Ltd.

  • Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum – Bell 47J-2 serial #1827 CF-PQZ. Plans are to restore this machine to present serial #1839 registration CF-CAF, which was a Canadian Coast Guard machine based in the Atlantic region during service with the Coast Guard. The museum is located at the Halifax International Airport beside the Quality Inn. [The page on the Bell 47J-2 seems to have disappeared.]

If you know of others, let me know and I’ll put them up.
