The Aerodrome of Democracy - The British Commonwealth Air Training Plan

The skies over Elgin County were filled with aircraft during WWII. Schools for bombing and gunnery, basic flying and mechanics were in operation here throughout most of the war. This exhibit marks the 80th anniversary of the plan that built bases in Fingal, Aylmer and south of St. Thomas. See aircraft models, images, uniforms and equipment.
