About this Walk

When did Calgary’s current airport open for business? Where was Calgary’s first airport? Where is the oldest surviving airport building in Calgary? Who are the streets in the airport area named for and why? Who did Marilyn Munroe fight with in Calgary’s airport terminal in 1953? (I sure hope someone knows the answers to these questions, or this is going to be a real short, dull walk…). Hike along with us as we shout over noisy airplanes for a look at Calgary’s aviation history and some of its great characters. There is a washroom at the start/finish point.
