Alberta Aviation Museum in Edmonton, Alberta.

Hours, Admission & Location

Aviation Museum

This video really doesn't do it justice as there is a lot to see at the museum that isn't on the video.
As their website states:
Discover how Northern Alberta's rich aviation history was made in your community, making Edmonton: The Gateway to the North.

See the incredible progress of technology in the past century of flight. Take a guided tour with a group, or plan a self guided interactive journey through the culture of flight, from the days of wood and fabric to the Jet Age of today.
Celebrate 100 years of flight...In Canada, and Alberta!

Google Translate

As at December 9, 2016 the Google Translate application is for Windows based systems and Bing, Explorer, Google, Mozilla Firefox, indeed, most all search engines. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch updated to iOS 7.0+. It accepts voice input for 15 languages and allows translation of a word or phrase into one of more than 50 languages. Translations can be spoken out loud in 23 different languages. With a little volunteer help, I am sure Google would add any number of North American First Nations languages.

Albeit, it seems to have trouble with alliterate, poetic and prose in Icelandic.
