407 - 75th Anniversary TO HOLD ON HIGH

This past weekend was spent connecting with my old squadron, 407 "The Demon Squadron", in Comox.

I was able to see the old (now called Block II) aircraft and learn that new (Block III) versions are busy out in the world.

There was a set of conversations about aircraft, issues of the past and present and an opportunity to dance with my lovely wife.

A new swag coin has been struck for the occasion.

I also had a few conversations with a veteran from the 1941-45 years of the squadron when the battle honors were earned.

sometimes the demon comes out in me

Perhaps I shall keep an eye out for the 80th anniversary.
