4Aviation travelled to Canada with a group of 10 persons from 8 to 18 June, to visit a number of Canadian air bases.
On Wednesday 8 June, the 10 participants met at Schiphol at a reasonable time for the first flight. It was KLM that took the group to Calgary for a change to a WestJet flight to Edmonton. The time between the two flights at Calgary was nearly 3 hours, but that appeared to be just enough. Due to the customs process there was no spare time a Calgary to pay a short visit to the AeroSpace Museum of Calgary. The WestJet flight to Edmonton was smooth and around 17.30 we picked up our two rental vans in Edmonton. The ride that followed, on our way to Bonnyville, took a little over three hours. After a long day with the first impressions of Canada and the Canadian landscape, everybody was off to bed rather early.
