    HISTORY
DESERVES A HOME
        The
Air Force Museum in Trenton, Ontario has been named
by the Chief of the Air Staff as the National museum
of the Air Forces of Canada; to be the major repository
of heritage artifact's including the Colours and the
Trust Funds of disbanded units.
In order to carry out this mandate, a proper home is required to reflect
the character and success of the men and women of the Air Forces and
their remarkable courage and achievements. This museum, with its central
Canadian location, presents a distinctive facility to display the memorabilia
associated with the many aircraft and support elements that ensure effective
operations in both war and peace. The Air Force Museum offers the
home our military air heritage so richly deserves; a public place to
foster recognition of the honour and service our Air Forces have bestowed
upon our country.
The long-term financial welfare of the Museum has been entrusted to the
RCAF Memorial Museum Foundation.
    HONOUR
THE PAST - SUPPORT THE FUTURE
         Canada’s
Air Force has a long and remarkable history; the sacrifices
and contributions of our men and women,
both groundcrew and aircrew, deserve to be recorded
and remembered by all Canadians. The Air Force
Museum, as the official museum of the Air Forces of
Canada, fulfills that mandate with its broad collection
of personal and squadron memorabilia. The Museum holds
several important displays, including a Victoria Cross
gallery and a depiction of the Great Escape. A team
of volunteers will soon complete work on the world’s
only fully restored Halifax Bomber.
        With
its central location, the Museum attracts an average
of 45,000 visitors a year from across Canada. At
present, the Museum’s 20,000 square feet will only
permit 30% of the collection to be displayed. This problem
is increasing as more and more artifact's are donated
to the Museum. A separate campaign is underway to raise
the funds needed to expand the Museum’s display
area to 65,000 square feet. This will allow us to display
our unique Halifax aircraft and a much larger portion
of the artifact collection.
        The
expanded Museum requires funding for its operation and
for the maintenance of the facility and its displays.
By joining the Foundation and contributing to the Museum
you can help honour the past and Support the future.
    THE
HANDLEY PAGE HALIFAX -NA337
Why
is the Halifax such an important part of Canada's Air
Force heritage?
It's important because 29,000 operational
Halifax missions out of a total of 37,000
in World War 2 were flown by Canadian
crews. We must always remember that 50,000
RCAF personnel served in Bomber Command,
of whom 10,000 gave their lives.
        The
restoration of the Halifax is a major undertaking by
the Halifax Aircraft Association, which is a dedicated
group of volunteers who recovered NA 337 from a fjord
in Norway. Their goal is to restore the aircraft to it's
original condition. There are only three Halifax left
in the world and NA337 is the most authentic.
