about

Canadian Warbird Survivors 2002 is designed to provide aviation enthusiasts with a simple location guide on where to find retired military aircraft that are preserved in Canada. The majority of the Canadian Warbird Survivors are on display within a great number of well-maintained aviation museums, many others are displayed as "gate guards" near or in a number of Canadian Forces bases, and a good number are in the hands of private collectors. Many are not listed in any catalogue, but have been found by word of mouth or personal observation. The museum staffs and volunteer organizations throughout Canada have done a particularly good job of preserving the great variety of Canadian military aircraft illustrated here. Hopefully, as more aircraft are recovered from their crash sites in the bush and restored, traded or brought back from private owners, they too will be added to the record. The book lists the aircraft alphabetically by manufacturer, number and type. This list is also appended with a brief summary of the aircraft presently on display within the nation and a bit of its history within the Canadian Forces.
Major Harold Skaarup earned his Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art with the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and a Master's Degree in War Studies with the Royal Military College of Canada. He enjoys skydiving, SCUBA diving and white water rafting with his two sons Jonathan and Sean.
