The Main Gallery – West Coast Aviation History.
Our self-guided tour begins at the dawn of Military Aviation in WWI, loops through WWII, Korea, the Cold War and United Nations Peacekeeping before reaching our Squadron section. Try out our CF-101 Voodoo ejection seat and get an up close and personal view of an Argus Wright 3350, 18 cylinder engine, then have a seat in our viewing lounge to watch a DVD from our collection.
