TAKE PRIDE IN ALBERTA! NO. I It was 1930 ___ Two flying pioneers, Wiley Post _ and Harold Catty piloted their s'obe circling 1 vefy minor yet located airfield. They set ft down in morass of mud that was Edmonton's Municipal Airport. Yet, destined to srow from these muddy runways and from this one small was one of the greatest airfields cf the Edmonton crossroads for the winss of the world. Tne present Airport was bom in 1920 to serve ihose early pioneers of aviation who were flying supplies and equipment into our great North. From that date facilities were progressively improved as the North was expanded. Thus, with our declaration of war, followed by the entry of Russia into the conflict, and Pearl Harbor, Edmonton had the perfect setting for 6e tremendous expansion required (a meet the emergency. AIRCRAFT HAS1XLED IN ONE YEAR Today One field is practically surrounded by mammoth hangars and Aircraft fepair depots. Covering 750 acres of land, the airport has three roiles of concrete runways, 200 feel in width. There is concrete perimeter trade that practically circles the field. Daring the war years, jlis heaviest bombers and transport aircraft and the fleetest fighters were Stationed or shuttled though Edmonton to Russia and the Orient. In one day 865 aircraft were cleared through; in the single year 1943 iota! of planes passed through the Edmonton Airport. EDMONTON ON THE ROUTE TO ORIENT AND MOSCOW According to aviation authorities, the shortest distance between points in North America and Asia will be over die top of fhe world. Through the EdmontoR.Airport, Alberta's place on these great asrpiths of the world a assured. Already an American Air Line has permission to operate a passenger freight service from New York to tia Edmonton. The Trans-Canada and die Canadian Pacific Air Lines- operate regular schedules out of Edmonton. The Airport is also used by die Royal Canadian Air Force, the Associated Airways, the R.C.M.R., the Imperial Oil and Eldorado Mines A rough estimate shows that approximately 100 aircraft per day now, either land or take off, from this site of Canada's largest Airport PROPHECY COMING TRUE Indeed, the 16-year-old prophecy of the late Wiley Post n true. As he stepped from the "Winnie Mae" ei Edmonton cnlnatmem- orable day in 1930, he said, "This airport is destined io play a promin- ent part in the consfuction cf an aerial bridge to Asia." AJberians raay well be proud of the outstanding advancement in that has taken place in this great province, and the part we an destined to pfay in future aviation history. CAPT. J.
