The Hangar Flight Museum, formerly known as the Aero Space Museum of Calgary is a museum in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The Museum is located immediately south of the Calgary International Airport. Over 24 aircraft are on display, as well as 58 aeronautical engines.[1] A section details the Canadian space programs.

History[edit]

The museum was founded in 1975 by aviation enthusiasts and former World War II pilots. It showcases the history of aviation and space technology of Western Canada.

A central War memorial stone slab and four other memorial slabs were erected by the Aircrew Association (Southern Alberta Branch) and the Aero Space Museum Association of Calgary. The plaque name the commonwealth air forces who trained in Calgary as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan during the Second World War: Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF); Royal Air Force (RAF); Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF); Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF). A In front of the slabs, a gravel mural of a Canadian roundel was painted.[2]

The Aero Space Museum Association of Calgary erected a list of honour memorial dedicated to the Alberta Airmen who were killed in the Second World War.[3]

On November 4, 2016 The Aero Space Museum of Calgary became The Hangar Flight Museum.[citation needed]
