Aircorps Art Dec 2019

A collection of over forty aircraft has grown through the friendship of Dennis Bradley and Alan Ness. Their love of aviation and their desire to maintain and preserve Canada’s aviation history saw restoration projects that were not only great pieces of workmanship but airworthy examples.

On June 25 & 26, 2022 the museum will celebrate its 50th anniversary. Visitors will have the opportunity to get close up to the aircraft and meet the crews at this intimate event on the museum’s ramp. While not an airshow, there will be flybys by many of the museum’s aircraft including the Lancaster as well as by some rare and unique visiting aircraft. Confirmed to date are: Mosquito, Hurricane, Spitfire, P-51 Mustang, P-40 Warhawk, and P-39 Airacobra.
