Canadian Wings, drawing on the full resources of the Canada Aviation Museum, provides a full and copiously illustrated account of how powered flight developed in Canada. Vignettes and anecdotes bring famous Canadian flyers to life, from J.A.D. McCurdy and Alexander Graham Bell to the aces of World War I, from bush pilots "Wop" May and "Punch" Dickins to boardroom executives Grant McConachie, Gordon McGregor and Max Ward. Featuring paintings by Robert Bradford, CM, and photographs by Dan Patterson, this compelling history details how aviation helped to build, defend and explore this vast nation, and to project its image abroad.
