National Post

Iraq seems set to slide into the same kind of civil war that still rages in Syria. Rockets are landing in Israel, China is flexing its muscles in the Pacific and even Eastern Europe has of late feared a return to large-scale armed conflict.

70th anniversary of the founding of the RCAF's first three squadrons dedicated to air transport operations
RCAF
