Centennial Canadian Aerospace Anniversary.

It was a week ago, on February 23rd, when Canada celebrated 100 years of aerospace history. It all started with the historic flight of Silver Dart, the first controlled powered flight in Canada.

Canadian aerospace history is quite fascinating, starting from the telephone inventor Alexander Graham Bell involvement in the Silver Dart flight, to the stellar design of the supersonic interceptor Avro Arrow or Beaver plane, up to Canada's involvement in international space programs with Canadarm.

There are a lot of aerospace achievements that every Canadian should be proud of.

The dedicated enthusiastic volunteers (some of which are shown in this picture) that try to preserve a glorious past are among the first of them.

Happy Canadian Aerospace Day!
