Witness to history

From WW2 D-DAY to Canadian skies
You can contribute to save and preserve an historical aircraft, world war two veteran and pionneer of Canadian airline development.

We estimate between $65 000 and $70 000 the total cost to bring her airworthy. 
All donations will be use solely to support our operations and to acquire aircraft parts and tools required to achieve our project.
