Canada Dry was the nickname for two Canadian Forces bases in Doha, Qatar during the first Gulf War. The two bases, named Canada Dry One (10 km outside of Doha) and Canada Dry Two, housed land and air elements (CF18 - Desert Cats).

Canada Dry is the name of a brand of ginger ale that originated in Canada.[1]

Units stationed at the base included:

A number of CF-18 fighters were stationed in the bases and flew sorties for the coalition.

Boeing CC-137 Husky tanker from 437 Transport Squadron also flew at the base to provide refueling for the CF-18 fighters.[4]
