The majority of the artifacts held by the museum relate to land force or Army history and service over the span of Canadas’ history, however, we have on display some unique items from the Navy and the Air Force. One of the very first artifacts donated to the museum is an inert air-to-air Falcon missile on display in the Air Force bay. This missile was deployed as armament for Canadian CF-101 Voodoo aircraft in the 1960s. The missile was manufactured by Hughes Aircraft and was used by U.S. and various Nato forces.
In the bay next door, the Navy bay, is an example of a canister type depth charge we see so often in all those late night movies as the allies hunt down submarines. These are just two of the myriad artifacts on display at the Canadian Military Heritage museum. We will continue to highlight specific items as we further develop our web site.
