Description

The Alberta Aviation Museum welcomes author Anne Gafiuk for the sixth and final installment of our 2019 Speaker Series.

In 1946, sixteen fully trained RCAF pilots from WWII were selected for an accident proneness project. Why were they chosen? Anne Gafiuk, with the help of Second World War RCAF veterans and post-war pilots, teamed together to find out. Three pilots from Alberta will be featured.

Thursday April 18th at 7 PM (doors at 6:30 PM)

Members $8, Non-Members $10 (+fees & tax)

Light refreshments included

Anne Gafiuk is a former elementary school teacher in Calgary who turned to freelance writing. During her research into WWII RCAF pilots for a fictional story, she became very interested in vintage aircraft, the people involved with them and their history, taking her on a new flight of discovery.

She is the author of three books published by the Bomber Command Museum of Canada: Wings Over High River, She Made Them Family, and Quietus: Last Flight. Presently, she is working on The Typhoon Project, a tribute to Canadians who served with Typhoon squadrons during WWII.
