2003 Museums: Canada Aviation and Space Museum

CYRO - N45 27 37 W75 38 46


Panoramic view of the main gallery

Of course, this magnificent museum is located at an airport !  Rockliffe airport to be precise (near Ottawa) and you can actually fly to the museum and taxi right to their ramp !  This is the best aircraft museum I have seen so far.  My pictures are arranged in a manner that mimics the old museum layout, before the construction of the new hangar:


Pictures taken at the Air Rallye 2007, in the new Storage Building:
