Historic Sites of Manitoba: Churchill Air Terminal / H-7 (Churchill)

The Air Terminal Building in Churchill, also known as Building H-7, once stood along the western border of the airport apron. It was a large two-storey rectangular structure with flanking two-storey lean-to wings, large side pylons, and a three-storey control tower situated on the south-west corner. Sliding glazed hangar doors, two stories high, were located on the eastern and western elevations. Constructed between 1949 and 1951 it was a variation of Standard Plan S-10-58. The Air Terminal Building was a rare example of an airport structure combining hangar, office, and control tower functions. The wood roof trusses and well-detailed hangar doors were notable features. The building is no longer present at the site.
