Located in Trenton, the National Air Force Museum of Canada has 35 aircraft on display, both inside the museum and in the RCAF Memorial Airpark. Most of these aircraft are the actual ones that were in service during the wars. Standing in front of them, one can imagine how the crews loaded materials and bombs and operated machine guns on the planes. Some of the planes are rescue planes.
It has been a while since I have sketched on location, but planes are one of my favorite subjects to sketch because I always ponder about the functions of the various parts of a plane.
Additionally, there are monuments and over 11,000 Ad Astra memorial stones lining the airpark pathways, reminding us of the countless lives lost in the wars that brought us grief and pain. As Remembrance Day approaches, lest we forget. No more war.
