Bomber Command aviators

Bomber Command aviators & friends

The WWII pilots who flew as part of Bomber Command had a high mortality rate – 1 in 4 survived.

Karl and James, board members of Halifax 57 Rescue Canada (H57RC), have worked for several years to help bring their forgotten story to the public attention. Today, a copy of a remembrance wall was presented to Canada’s Aviation and Space Museum with some Bomber Command vets in attendance. The original is in Nanton, AB.

The Great One

The Great One

A trip to the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum with the camera club. There is a monthly outing organized to help get folks off their butts and out there doing something.

One of the challenge themes was “the great one”. Thought this fit the bill.
