    Rain is a non issue
    Wind could be a problem and we just have to deal with it on the fly
    Hail could delay the move

    The most delicate aircraft are the prime concern (oldest/fabric covered), the larger metal aircraft are designed to deal with rain and hail.

    Wind is the biggest show delayer

    Hi Spill

    The fencing will be creating a huge compound the aircraft will be parked in and keep things secure from the airport operations.

    You will be able to get within 3-4 feet (1m +/-) of the aircraft (but please do not touch!).

    The only thing that may be obscured are the backgrounds, but even then it will just look like an airport.

    Timing is tough, this is the biggest move we have ever had to do so I don't really know what time most will be out. Wild guess...1pm.

    Photographers Museum Shuffle July 27 / 28

    Grab your Camera!

    July 27th / 28th Only
    Aviation Museum Collection Shuffle

    July 27th and 28th starting at 9:00am the Alberta Aviation Museum is making a rare floor layout change which involves most of the aircraft that are normally inside being moved outside to re arrange them.

    Photographers, this is a rare chance to see most of the collection outside in natural light with the airport and Edmonton’s skyline in the background. Bring your cameras!

    For everyone else it is a living museum event that will show just how much effort and how complex a move of this scale is. Even the hanging exhibits have to be lowered for this move!

    The Museum remains open through the change...regular hours 10am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday with volunteers on hand and special fencing brought in to keep things safe. Regular admissions apply.

    Unfortunately a move of this scale means the Boeing 737 will be closed for tours this weekend and the Sabre Jet will be closed.
