From the eccentric Fairey Battle to the lethal-looking CF-18, from modern airliners that have no defects (and no character) to the classic North Star (which had both), here is the ultimate line-up of the aircraft that have served Canadians in the last century. With over one hundred photographs of fifty historic planes, Wings Across Canada is a retrospective of Canadas aeronautical technology.

Air Canada - Peter Pigott. Back in Ottawa, I began churning out books on bush pilots and air aces in the Flying Canucks series on the history of commercial aviation in Canada and on Canadian airports and aircraft.

Wingwalkers celebrated the life and death of Canadian Airlines, and National Treasure detailed the same of Trans-Canada Air Lines (TCA).
