Conclusion

INTRODUCTION
By Greg Sigurdson
The Canada 150 Vignette Series is a project undertaken by the Commonwealth Air Training Plan Museum with two purposes. It is the museum’s salute to Canada’s 150 birthday and a showcase for various aspects of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan - a vital part of Canadian history as Canada’s great contribution to aircrew training in World War II. 

Viewers of the museum’s Facebook group – BCATP Air Museum – will see 150 vignettes (brief accounts with a photo or two) about various aspects of the `Plan’ every other day or so in 2017. 

Topics include articles about the 100 plus BCATP schools, personal recollections from people who experienced World War II firsthand, aircraft used by the 'Plan' and training courses received by the aircrew, among other topics. We hope you will look at our 150 celebratory posts and enjoy learning about our museum and the 'Plan.'
