Not my kind, which sits out all or part of January, February and March in warmer climes, but the aviation kind, which flies Canadair CT-114 Tutors in formation at a great rate of knots and often upside down, to boot.
This national treasure isn’t one person, but many people: all the pilots, maintainers, and squadron commanders and support staff over the years. And it isn’t just the people: it’s the airplanes, the training, and the management effort that pulls it all together.
This is one of a series on Canadian national treasures – my sesquicentennial project. They reflect people (living and dead), places and things that I think are worth celebrating about our country, and are done in no order of precedence.
