-----------softcover, about 9.5w x 11h inches, a Near Fine copy, 246 pages, colour and b&w images throughout, ---"Lavishly illustrated and richly told, using the full resources of the Canada Aviation Museum, Canadian Wings is a stunning tribute to the men, machines and daredevil achievements of Canadian flight. This book gives a full and copiously illustrated account of how powered flight developed during its first century in Canada, as well as the contribution that Canadians made to the wider story of flight in the world. Canadian Wings draws on the unparalleled collections of the Canada Aviation Museum in Ottawa, for its nearly 200 images including archival photographs, paintings, and memorabilia. It features the artworks of Robert Bradford, former director of the Museum, and Dan Patterson, photographer and author of several aviation books. Combined with compelling history and colourful anecdote, this beautifully illustrated book will give readers a new appreciation of how northern wings have helped to build, defend, and explore this vast nation, and to project its image abroad."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
