General information

The acquisition of aircraft and other artifacts, primarily through private donations, has provided the Society with an impressive collection of displays. Bomber Command aircraft are represented by the Lancaster and a Bolingbroke which is being restored as a Blenheim IV bomber. BCATP aircraft such as the Fleet Fawn, Tiger Moth, Lysander, Cornell, Anson, Yale, Harvard, and Expeditor provide our visitors with an excellent understanding of the training effort. On outside display, a T-33 and CF-100 serve as “Gate Guardians.” The Society attempts to connect people to the artifacts as much as possible. Our Lancaster has been dedicated to S/L Ian Bazalgette VC, the only Albertan to be awarded the Victoria Cross during WW II.
