The Bomber Command Museum of Canada has an exciting weekend – and summer – planned. The Museum’s purpose is to honour those who served with Bomber Command during World War II. It specifically commemorates the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan.
The Museum will be holding a special program this Saturday (May 24) to commemorate the Victoria Cross flight of the only Albertan awarded the VC during World War II. The program begins at 11:30 and concludes at 2:30. Step back in time through hearing about Ian Bazalgette’s forgotten letters, watch flypasts of vintage aircraft, hear from Charles Bazalgette (ian Bazalgette’s nephew), and participate in photo ops during Lancaster Cockpit Tour.
