Halifax 57 Rescue and the Bomber Command Museum of Canada were involved in the construction of the Bomber Command Memorial in London, England. Aluminum from the recovered Halifax LW682 from Belgium in 1997 was melted down into ingots. 800 pounds of ingots were reshaped and became the ceiling of the monument dedicated by the Queen of England.
We begin our series with The Belgian Forest, a detail 45 minute documentary of the ingots and their transformation. In 2012, we traveled to England with a group of air force veterans to attend the unveiling. This video is just the beginning of the incredible story of the memorial. Many more videos related to the monument will be featured on this page in the near future.
