88 Winter Olympic Pin

Item Description:

This pin was given to me by Ralph Klein at a media accredidation meeting one month prior to the opening of the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympic Games.   I was accredited as a media representative to cover the games as an Air Traffic Reporter.     

Mcleod Trail Going South 3 Torch Run

There were three (3) media outlets and one RCMP aircraft accredited to occupy the very restricted airspace above Calgary during the games.    ABC and CTV Television both had helicopters and along with my  Cessna 172 and the RCMP aircraft, the airspace became very crowded especially during the Torch coverage on the opening day.

This pin measures 1 inch by .75 inches and has a secure clasp on the reverse.
