Air Force Museum
HISTORY DESERVES A HOME
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.
HONOUR THE PAST - SUPPORT THE FUTURE
Canadas 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 worlds 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 Museums 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 Museums 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.
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 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.
