U.S. Consul General in Halifax Visits Museum
As part of a Wing familiarization tour, Capt Robert Johnson and Major Al Baillie provided a Museum tour to Mr Steven Giegerich, U.S. Consul General in Halifax, and two of his staff members. Accompanying the Consul General on the tour was LCdr (USCG) Roland Orr, US Coast Guard exchange officer flying the CC130 Hercules with 413 Squadron. Of interest, in the restoration shop, was the forward fuselage of a US Army H21 helicopter used in the restoration of the Museum’s RCAF H44 “Flying Banana” helicopter of 1960's Search and Rescue fame. The H21 and H44 shared similar airframes.
