Curators of the Aero Space Museum of Calgary assemble a century’s worth of authentic civilian and military aircrafts in a former flight-training school hanger boasting more than 21,000 square feet of space. A restored WWI-era Sopwith Triplane educates onlookers about aerial fighting history, and the de Havilland DH. 100 Vampire F Mk. III’s 3,100-pound engine doubles as the purring mechanism inside giant robot tigers. A display case containing pilots’ personal effects sits beside a Bell 47G helicopter. In addition to refurbished aircrafts, the museum exhibits scale models of famous aviating machines such as the NASA Columbia space shuttle, the Wright brothers’ 1903 flyer, and pterodactyls used to transport cavemen on business trips.

About The Hangar Flight Museum

Gliders and a small two-seater aircraft hangs from the ceiling. A WWII fighter jet crouches silently next to a WWI triplane and a vintage helicopter. At the The Hangar Flight Museum, visitors peruse an expansive collection of propeller and jet aircraft inside a renovated hangar that was built in 1941 to serve as the drill hall for a flight-training school. Museum staffers care for and maintain a range of North American and European aviation artifacts, such as military and civilian planes built by Barkley-Grow, de Havilland, and Waco; a replica Sopwith triplane; and Sikorsky and Bell helicopters. Guides also lead educational tours through hangar exhibits, during which young visitors learn about the physics of flight and the inner workings of airplanes.
