Der Eingang zu Museum - schlicht und einfach

This RCAF Museum is still a hidden gem even to many Canadians. It is maintained and operated by a group of volunteers.
It includes a "Memorial Garden" which is dedicated to the pilots of 5 countries as part of the "British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP)".
You can see her many documents, pictures and artifacts about the military history of this facility.
The friendly and very knowledgeable volunteers assist and help you gladly with information when you have questions.

I enjoyed to talk to the elderly volunteers

As far as I remember souvenirs are also offered in order to keep this place alive

This construction of this training center started in 1940 and was also completed in the same year. The first pilots completed their training in 1941.
As I learned a total of 2436 young people from Canada,the UK, Australia, New Zealand and the USA got their certificates.
When we visited Goose Bay in Labrador we met young Germans who were training low level flying there without all the restrictions which they face in Europe. Nice to see that former enemies became finally friends.
Please browse through the museum and do not hesitate to ask for details. I only want to give you some impressions what to expect. Use the Internet to search for more information.
I was immediately recognized as somebody who did not grow up in Canada. No bad feelings when I told them that I was born in Germany.
I did not get any restrictions to take pictures and to use some of the available information. Other places in the Niagara Region should learn from this and other small museums and the involved volunteers.

It is interesting to learn which planes had been used for the training of pilots and details how it was done. Also accidents happened.
After the end of WWII the training facility was closed - and the Dunnville Airport was born.
Das Museum was established in 2003 and today not only military airplanes are displayed.
Today there are not any longer any flight and sky diving acuities because of surrounding wind turbines.
