Although this page will give you an overview of the No. 6 RCAF Museum, we sure hope you are able to visit us in person!
As you drive south on Port Maitland Rd. from Byng towards the Port Maitland Pier, the former Dunnville Airport will be on your right with a sign welcoming you to the No. 6 RCAF Dunnville Museum.
While you can stop in an check out the museum at any time during our operating hours, you can also book a private tour ahead of time.
If you want to see more detail on the embedded photos, just click on a photo and an enlarged version will open in a new window.
The Memorial Garden, Monuments & Historical Plaques
From the Airport entrance, you will see a Harvard aircraft mounted on a pedestal. The plane marks the Memorial Garden with the RCAF flag and those of the five countries who sent men to be trained here.
Turn right into the driveway and follow it to the entry to the Memorial Garden on the right. Take the time to drive in, get out and inspect the monuments.
The number 47 on the side of the Harvard denotes the number of students and instructors who lost their lives during training at the No. 6 SFTS. These men are memorialized with a monument plaque that records their name, rank, and home air force.
Granite monuments also honour those who died during training at the No. 16 SFTS in Hagersville and the No. 1 Bombing and Gunnery School in nearby Jarvis.
There are two historical plaques as well as more than 170 granite stones in memory of those who served in WW II as well as Museum members.
Thanks to a $9,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Museum was able to refurbish the Memorial Harvard in time for the 2013 summer season.
