    Just received this from a fellow RCAF member. It may be of interest. May have to cut and paste the web address.

    The history of Canadian Air Force.

    On Canadian Wings, published Jul 22, 2014, is a ten episode documentary on the history of the Royal Canadian Air Force. Starting from early 1888,Canadian airmen and machines have been flying in the service of the British
    and Canadian forces. This series covers the RCAF from the early beginnings
    to present day. Each episode is around 12 minutes - very interesting and
    informative.
