Visiting the Bomber Command Museum

Back in June, I was lucky enough to go on a little road trip with my grandfather and his good friend Jack.

My grandfather spent most of his working life in the Canadian Military. Back in the day, when he went to flight school, Jack was actually his teacher. Together they worked on the Lancaster aircraft. Decades later, after both working and living all over the world, the two men re-connected when they both found themselves living in Edmonton. The two now meet every Sunday morning for breakfast at a restaurant called Alberts, trading stories and news with eachother.

The opportunity to travel with these two men, along with my uncle, to visit a museum that housed one of the few remaining planes that they had worked on decades ago was too good to pass up.

Here are some of my favourite photos from our trip to the Bomber Command Museum in Nanton, AB.

Watching these two men, who both served their country for most of their lives, walk around and take it all in, was an incredible moment. Both men remembered so so much about these planes. Not many people can say that they got to tour the museum with people who lived the history.
