If the First World War introduced the concept of aerial combat, then the Second World War cemented its status as one of the defining elements of modern warfare. Rapid advancement in aircraft technology produced the aluminum-clad bombers, cargo planes and jet-powered aircraft that gradually replaced the wooden-framed and fabric-clad biplanes of the Great War.
Aircraft carriers allowed planes to extend their reach farther than ever before, while a new technologyradarbolstered defensive and offensive strategies in the skies. The Aircraft of the Second World War series salutes three of the most iconic aircraft flown between 1939 and 1945. Whether used to defend the homeland, in combat overseas or as part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan here in Canada, these aircraft are remembered as important symbols of Canadian valour and sacrifice.
