Active planning is now under way for the 2017 CAHS Convention and AGM, to be held in London, Ontario, for the first time. A Canadair Silver Star, formerly RCAF 133422, is displayed outside the terminal of London International Airport in honour of all who served with RCAF 420 "City of London" Squadron, RCAF, during the Second World War and afterward when it was reformed as an RCAF Auxiliary Squadron. The "Snowy Owl" Squadron was formed in 1941 as part of RAF 5 Group at Waddington.

London is home to the Diamond Aircraft factory, the Secrets of Radar Museum, the Jet Aircraft Museum, and the International Test Pilot School. The Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association, at Tillsonburg, the Canadian Historical Aircraft Association, Windsor, and the Canadian Warplane Heritage, Hamilton, are all within a couple of hours' drive. The amazing Henry Ford Museum and the Yankee Air Museum (Willow Run) are just across the US border.

A date has not been confirmed yet, but as soon as it is, you will see it in our newsletter.
