That's my home airport. The museum is right on the airport grounds, within perhaps a 5 minute walk from the terminal. Drop by during a lay over. There is storage available for your bags while you check it out, and a nice observation lounge where you can enjoy a coffee and view the airport.

I had occasion to be stationed at CFB North Bay ON. during the 50th anniversary cross Canada tour of this beautiful aircraft. I took several photos of the aircraft on approach, landing and with crew on the ground for photo op. I'd like to share them here but it doesn't seem possible.

Just absolutely fabulous! What a beauty! Bravo Canada!
They are celebrating by sending one of the last two airworthy Electras on it's final journey?
