Aircraft documents donated to a Langley museum

Langley’s Canadian Museum of Flight welcomed a record-setting pilot who brought documents about a key museum piece.

The Waco was built in 1930 by an Ohio-based firm. It is the oldest one still flying in Western Canada and one of the few INFs around.
It was originally used for by a Seattle-based washing machine salesman, and was brought to B.C. air shows in the 1930s.

The plane would go on to be owned by 16 owners in 20 years and has been in B.C. since 1972. It was donated to the museum by Mike Meeker in 1979.
Terry Brunner, manager of the museum which is run as a non-profit, said this helps round out the story of the Waco INF.
