RCAF Kittyhawk
Accident Proneness Report

A medical student in 1948 requested sixteen WWII North American pilots' files from the RCAF as part of his thesis. PXHugh Burns Hay looked at their training, education, family background, flying experience, types of aircraft, and weather conditions, looking for a common theme as to why these were fatal accidents.

WWII Correspondence Project

I am looking for Canadian WWII correspondence, preferably RCAF, of all varieties: letters, postcards, and telegrams to use in another research project.
