The Spitfire caught the imagination of the public throughout World War Two. Along with the Hurricane, this fighter was a mainstay of the Battle of Britain and a common sight among Allied air assets from multiple countries, including Canada. This particular one saw service with RCAF squadrons during the war.
Here we have a proper view of the plane I've been showing you bits and pieces of for the last few posts. The Lancaster is described as the backbone of Bomber Command. Canadian factories were among those who built the Lancaster Mk. X for Allied air forces, and Lancasters were part of the RCAF throughout the war and afterwards. If I had to pick a single favourite plane in the collection here, it would be this one.
A model of the Lancaster is down at the edge of the path.
From the painted additions indicating bombing runs, this one saw its share of action.
I leave off with this shot from beneath the Lancaster. We move into some civilian aircraft tomorrow.
