Prince Michael of Kent Tours Alberta Aviation Museum

On Thursday, Prince Michael of Kent was invited to be the guest of honor at the Alberta Aviation Museum in Canada. It was a very special visit for the Prince, who also happens to be a pilot, and an enthusiastic fan of aviation history.

During his tour, Prince Michael was able to practice his flying on a DC-6 flight simulator, which featured technology developed exclusively by the Alberta Aviation Museum. He also checked out the cockpit of a Boeing 737, and tried out other interactive exhibits. The most personal part of the visit came when Prince Michael was presented with photographs taken of his father, the Duke of Kent, during a visit to the facility that is now the museum, in the World War II years. When the Duke of Kent visited, the building was part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.
