The Comox Air Force Museum is ideally situated for the region: The Canadian Forces Base Comox has been located 4.6km/2.9mi from the town of Comox since 1942.

The museum honours the history of the Canadian Forces Air Command and aviation on Canada's west coast. And with panache.

Take a walk and meet the Canuck, once sneered at as "the Clunk," it proved stalwart in the Korean and Cold Wars. The Canadair Argus was a hybrid of British and American engineering and a powerful anti-submarine warfare aircraft for the RCAF in WWII. The de Havilland Vampire has no fangs, but the postwar aircraft was an air show star for years. Used in NORAD defence, the nuclear-capable McDonnell Voodoo emerged as a fearsome fighter. All 19 planes have their stories, their place in history assured.
