Since part of the museum’s mandate is to preserve Canada’s jet aircraft heritage, we are always looking for examples of aircraft that served in the Canadian Forces and the RCAF. Not only are we looking for the aircraft themselves, but we are also searching for equipment, parts and supplies that would have been used in the operation of any jets.
If you ever worked with these aircraft, know of air frames for sale or that could be saved, or have something that would be of help in telling the amazing stories of these jets, and the men and women who helped protect Canada and Canadian interests, please Contact Us.
