Aircraft preserved in Canada 4b: Warplanes in Manitoba, CFB Winnipeg, Air Force Heritage Museum and Air Park

Warplanes preserved in the Air Force Heritage Museum and Air Park, CFB Winnipeg

The page for warplanes preserved in Manitoba has grown too large to download quickly, so the aircraft on display at the Air Force Heritage Museum and Air Park are listed here separately.

The aim of this website is to locate, identify and document every historical Warplane preserved in Canada.  Many contributors have assisted in the hunt for these aircraft to provide and update the data on this website.  Photos are by the author unless otherwise credited.  Any errors found here are by the author, and any additions, corrections or amendments to this list of Warplanes in Canada would be most welcome and may be e-mailed to the author at hskaarup@rogers.com.
