Donor Appreciation - Lakeview Resort
The Donors that made it possible for the purchase and return of the first parts of the Gimli Glider to Canada were treated to a “View of the Gimli Glider Exhibit”. The large group of guests were highly complementary about the display and the introduction of a full-scale cockpit mock up with an incorporated Flight Simulator Experience and the planned theater area complete with authentic aircraft passenger seats.
The samples of the design element of the display and some contents were also well received. It was great to hear the supportive comments from all three levels of government and how they were pleased the aviation history of Gimli, and especially the Gimli Glider will finally be available to the public.
