When the 19th annual Alberta International AirShow takes flight on the July 24 weekend in Lethbridge, one pilot will be bringing a whole new meaning to the term “experienced.”
Bud Granley, formerly of Edmonton and now of Bellevue, Wash., first got his pilot’s licence when he was 18 after gaining an interest while a member of his local air cadets club. That would all sound absolutely fine and normal if the year he got it wasn’t 1955 and he wasn’t now a 73-year-old acrobatic pilot entering his 50th year of performing at air shows.
