YTM Movie Night 'Never Happen Here - The Whitehorse 9-11 Story'

July 21, 7pm

The Yukon Transportation Museum presents the compelling Northern chapter of the 9/11 story and its effects on Whitehorse, Yukon.
 

On 9/11, the peaceful world of a remote northern town was shattered when a "hijacked" 747 approached with fighter jets on its tail. Schools were evacuated, and parents, already shaken by images of the tragedy in New York City, raced in panic to locate their children in what they feared could be the last moments of their lives. 

Until that day, the people of Whitehorse, Yukon believed that such a thing could "never happen here." A decade later, questions remain about why a hostile Korean airliner was diverted to Canada. 

7pm: Introduction by Max Fraser, the movie's writer-director-producer.

Film Showing (45mins)

8pm: (Approximately) David White, an Air Traffic Controller in the tower that day will share his memories.

I Think I Can: Yukon Trains

What's the best way to build a railway in the Yukon?... Tell a northerner it can't be done.  Our trains go over mountain ranges and into the hearts of mountains.  We have tracks built out of logs and trains with wheels.  Yukon ingenuity!
