Reynolds Alberta Museum Visit and Tour (Pictures)

The Edmonton & Area 567 Club members and their wives had a cruise to the World Famous Reynolds Museum in Wetaskiwin, AB on May 14.  The tour was presented by our host Kerrie and included a special behind the scenes Work Shop Tour. 

We had the whole building plus the aircraft display to ourselves  (that was nice), plus a couple of members (Armand & Clayton) took a ride in a vintage Bi-plane around the location! The whole experience was a hoot! 

Many thanks to Roy for setting this trip up!
