[title]Edmonton's Aviation History: More Than a Century of Adventure (An Alberta Aviation Museum Online Lecture Series)[desc]Online Wednesday, July 27, 2022, 7 – 8pm [image: Edmonton's Aviation History: More Than a Century of Adventure (An Alberta Aviation Museum Online Lecture Series)] This Month's Online Lecture: Lecture 7 – Edmontonians Abroad in WWII July 27, 2022 With too many pilots and too little work in civil aviation, many Canadians flock to Britain's Royal Air Force. When the Second World War breaks out, the former mayor's son, H.P. Blatchford defends against a fierce German assault. He's joined by a new crop of aviators from back home, and as the war goes on, Edmontonians serve with distinction overseas, especially in No. 418 Squadron RCAF. Registrations end at 4:00pm on the day of the lecture.
