About the Museum:

The Gimli Glider Exhibit preserves and tells the amazing story of an Air Canada jet that made a successful glide and landing, in 1983, at Gimli airport after running out of fuel. The exhibit has certified parts from the aircraft, a large amount of memorabilia from the pilot, a cockpit mock-up/flight simulator, and a theatre area showing docudramas visitors can view while seated in an authentic 1983 era aircraft passenger seat.
