Book Overview

Canadian Warbirds of the Post-War Piston Era is intended to provide the reader with a quick reference to the propeller-driven aircraft flown by the Royal Canadian Air Force, the Royal Canadian Navy, the Canadian Army and the Canadian Forces in the post-Second World War piston-era. The handbooks in this series include a general description and a photograph from the Canadian Forces Archives of at least one of the key variants or marks of each aircraft that has been in Canadian military service. 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 also included, along with a brief description of the Canadian Squadrons that flew the aircraft on operations. This is the fifth volume in the series. It describes the piston-powered fighters, bombers, patrol aircraft, trainers, transports and utility aircraft flown by Canadian aircrews after WWII. 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.
