The City of Calgary is calling on the public to help decide the fate of two antique aircraft that have been in storage for decades.

Estimates to restore a de Havilland Mosquito and a Hawker Hurricane lie in the millions of dollars.

The Mosquito was donated to the City of Calgary in 1972, and the Hawker Hurricane was brought to Calgary to be a part of the Air Museum of Canada in the 1960s, eventually becoming the property of the city in the ’70s.

“We have a whole set of questions regarding what options (the public) might favour,” said Gerry Laing, civic partners liaison with the City of Calgary.

Two information sessions will be hosted at the Aero Space Museum of Calgary, located at 4629 McCall Way NE, today and tomorrow from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Laing said that public consultation is an important part of council’s “engage” policy.
