Foster takes you to the beginning in 1909, just six years ater the success at Kitty Hawk, when the first manned flying machine to operate successfully within the British Empire flew at Baddeck, Nova Scotia. He documents the period between the wars when the Royal Canadian Air Force was officially founded, through to the massiveCanadian support in World War II, the Cold War and to the present, when de tente means - perhaps unwisely - a reduction in air force personnel and units." - from the dj.
