History

 

 

In 1927 Charles Lindbergh, one of histories finest aviators, was cordially invited to visit the city of Vancouver following his non-stop, solo, transatlantic flight. As fate would have it he declined stating, ‘There is no fit field to land on’. Needless to say Mr. Lindbergh’s words caused the city of Vancouver to invest $600,000 in an effort to construct a new airport to replace the existing grass airstrip. The rest, as they say, is history.
