Foreword

 

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. After a 35 - year love affair with military aviation and 16 years of operational flying, I was moved by the beauty of the photographs that grace this book. Against the magnificent backdrop of Canada and the diverse areas of the world where our Canadian Air Force operates, readers are treated to a feast of images and text. Together they tell a fascinating story of a peacetime air force poised for operational duties anywhere in the world as required by the Government of Canada.

 

( ... ) This book focuses on military aviation. Young men and women, cadets and not - so - young men and women tell their story, a familiar one reflecting pride of service and self - achievement.

 

From operations in the Sinai to sovereignty missions, the men and women who comprise Canada's Air Force today reflect the courage and character of those who preceded them. They are no less important. A nation such as Canada with huge land, sea and airspaces, with alliance commitments and international aid, depends heavily on a young, innovative and well - equipped air force. This tradition continues. The author's photographs are the proof.
