An Airplane Named Terry: Flyboys and their War Brides

March 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

While hundreds of bright yellow aircraft of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan scrolled Canadian skies during the Second World War, the influx of trainees altered the nation’s social landscape. Of 130,000 graduates, 4,000 foreign “flyboys” earned wings–and wives—while in training. For their brides a new husband meant a one-way ocean passage to a distant land.

Join artist, Bev Tosh, the daughter of a New Zealand military pilot and his Canadian war bride, for a fascinating presentation on this untold segment of aviation history.
