Aerial Views from the Past

Happy Monday All!

I will not, shall not, cannot comment on the weather any further. It is way too easy to be a tad negative when it’s -46!

Except I think I just did comment on the weather. Oops.

I hope that everyone’s weekend was fantastic. Mine was pretty low key, although I did unleash some serious shopping skills on Sunday. And go figure, I bought a bunch of summer clothes. I guess it’s wishful thinking!

Today the airport is very busy indeed, so let’s get right to it!

Today’s post is a video from a loooong time ago! Check out the black and white video footage- there is a certain charm to it isn’t there? My favorite part is when they land at the end- you get the sense that the camera is one bump away from falling right out of the window! I also really liked checking out Winnipeg from above from that long ago. And while we celebrate the past today, I am working on getting some more pieces about the new terminal figured out in the next few days. I have a plan to create a bunch more videos and ’carly blog’ style tours in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned!

Carly it can be so "looong" time ago. Given that there are no propellers on the wing or even jet pylons, the plane was probably a DC-9, which entered service in 1967. Plus, at the 27-second mark the Winnipeg Floodway appears, which was completed in the 1960s. Of note on the tour, the old Imperial Oil refinery on Henderson Highway, just north of the Perimeter is visible. Today it is only a fuels distribution centre. Right after that is a spiffing view of the Red River and the Middlechurch area. Give us some more of these movies. Thanks.Reply
