Historic Sites of Manitoba: Stevenson Airport Founders Monument (Winnipeg)

Located at the base of a T-33 jet trainer on the south side of Portage Avenue on the east bank of Sturgeon Creek, this plaque was unveiled on 18 August 1967. It commemorates the founders of the original Stevenson Airport in St. James in 1927 and the service men and women who trained in St. James during the Second World War.
