The Bomber Command Museum of Canada

In 2010 the Calgary Mosquito Society entered into partnership with the Bomber Command Museum of Canada. The museum's gracious agreement includes the use of shop space, specialized tooling and their member's expertise in exchange for allowing visitors the opportunity to see a de Havilland Mosquito and Hawker Hurricane up close and 'in the flesh.'

The Bomber Command Museum is a cornerstone of the Nanton community, located 40 minutes south of the City of Calgary on Highway 2, housing an impressive collection of vintage aircraft; the centerpiece being an Avro Lancaster bomber.

In addition to its aircraft the museum features Canada's Bomber Command Memorial, with the names of 10,659 Canadians and members of the RCAF, killed in combat or while training with Bomber Command.
