Within these pages we will endeavor to illuminate parts of Canada’s history of military aviation. Topics will be limited to those aircraft and equipment normally associated with keeping a large Air Force working and fighting at home and abroad. Topics will be primarily those commonly overlooked in the larger histories and will allow additional detail to be presented relating to the materiel culture in use at the time. Data sets with serialization will be included when possible, along with a brief narrative of the subject vehicle relating pertinent facts. Images and anecdotes will also be included if available. 

Subjects will be added as time and research materials allow.  Please use the menu selection within the drop down at the top of the page to view individual entries. If there is something we haven’t included that you would like to see, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
