Wop May Comic about First Air Police Chase in Canada

Posted by on October 6, 2014 in Museum Moments

Legacy of Heroes: Flight into Danger, the second issue in the Edmonton Police Service’s popular comic book series, is now available. The exciting story, taken from the Edmonton Police Service archives, describes the first time in Canadian history an aircraft was used by police in a criminal pursuit.

Edson was the impromptu destination for pilot and police passenger in this hair-raising adventure. They landed on 1st Ave and Wop later took off from Main Street.
