Military & Aviation
At many times during the history of Prince George, Canadian and American military bases were established at locations around the city. In 1920, the U.S. Air Force on their New York to Nome, Alaska Expedition used Central Street as an airstrip to land and make repairs to the aircraft.

Themes List

Military - The arrival of the military during World War II nearly doubled the population of Prince George.

The Airports - Some of the areas that have been used for landing aircraft have been along Central Street, where the P.G. Golf Course is today, and on the Fraser River using float planes.
