love it.

It is an Edmonton city landmark and one of the earliest airports of its time. wop may was a a war hero and a great founder to this airport. he opened up the gateway to the north and delivered life saving vaccines. truly sad to be losing this history from my city due to mayor mandel. Sara

Since the mainstream newspapers are prone to removing links to articles, here's a similar article on aviation.ca -- http://www.aviation.ca/content/view/9011/117/

Reply to @douglasr: I've updated the pilot info - thanks. Very sad news for the city of Edmonton.

Rwy 16/34 is now closed

On August 3, 2010 the city barricaded the runway and had a NOTAM issued. More details in this article from the Edmonton Journal: http://www.edmontonjournal.com/sports/Edmonton+City+Centre+Airport+closes+runway/3354012/story.html

It's closing

http://www.aviation.ca/content/view/7583/117/

"Blatchford Field Airport in downtown Edmonton City Centre will be closing the run-ways. At a vote today in council chambers, aviation just didn’t measure up.

The Airport was a primary learning base during WWll.

Edmonton City Centre Airport is a major Airport for air charter, emergency medical transport, and supply gateway to the north and it is too soon to tell what other implications the closing may have."

City might close airport

Some city counselors want to close the airport and sell the land to developers, but local doctors want it to stay open for medevac and organ-delivery flights:

The hot chicks are working at the Esso Avitat counter. Try the pilot angle to get a phone number. The blonde one is married.
