My father and I visited the National Air Force Museum of Canada (NAFMC) in Trenton, Ontario today as part of his Father’s Day gift. My dad used to fly small aircraft and this made our visit even more special. Our visit had a particularly personal touch as we were greeted by a veteran who had flown, well, it seemed, like multiple aircraft from 2-seaters, to helicopters, to fighter jets and to commercial airliners.
The NAFMC proudly to honours the heritage of the Royal Canadian Air Force. The facility, which has indoor and outdoor exhibits, brings your on an aviation history full of valour and tradition through a wide variety of aircraft, interactive activities and displays, including the fully restored World War II Halifax Bomber (the only one of its kind in the world). The 16-acre Airpark features both historic and active aircraft on view for an up-close and personal aviation experience. Also in the Airpark are some 11,000 Ad Astra Stones and 35 Monuments that tribute past and current members of the RCAF.
