The Legacy Series

This original documentary film series – created by Canadian film students and the Canada Aviation and Space Museum – showcases powerful, personal accounts of the Second World War through the lens of aviation.

Through six episodes, The Legacy Series shares the captivating stories of Canadian veterans — airmen and women who served in the Royal Canadian Air Force, Royal Air Force, Women’s Auxiliary Air Force, and the Polish Air Force — as well as former European civilians. The Legacy Series bridges the generational divide between veterans and youth, bringing the stories of our country’s history to life for today’s students.
