Book Overview

Canadian Warbirds of the Biplane Era provides the reader with a quick general reference to identify military support aircraft flown by Canadians during the First World War and post-war with the Canadian Air Force, the Royal Canadian Air Force, the Royal Canadian Navy, and the Canadian Army during the biplane era. The handbooks in this series include a general description and a photograph from the Canadian Forces Archives of key variants or marks of each aircraft that has been in Canadian service or used by Canadian servicemen overseas. Each aircraft is listed alphabetically by manufacturer, number and type. General details describing the aircraft's engines, service ceiling, speed, armament or weapons load are included, along with a brief description of the Canadian squadrons that flew the aircraft. Canadian Warbirds of the Biplane Era describes the trainers, transports and utility aircraft flown by Canadian servicemen during the biplane era. A list of museums, private aircraft collections and other locations where a number of the survivors might be found is also included. The handbook is not a definitive list of all Canadian-manufactured or operated aircraft, but it should serve as a quick reminder of the major examples for anyone with an interest in Canadian military aviation.

This is the second volume in the series.
