History and Heritage
Cold Lake is home to 4 Wing Air Force Base, the busiest fighter base in Canada. This means the area has a
rich military aviation history, which you can explore at the Cold Lake Air Force Museum
. Visitors can learn
how to start an F-18 engine, marvel at radar equipment from the Cold War or sit in the cockpit of a mock
Starfighter (CF-104) in the Air Force Gallery. Explore a life-size F-18 decoy, a Forward Looking Infrared
Pod (FLIR) and more.
