Current Projects

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. Hugh 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.


Anne is currently interviewing Typhoon pilots, their family and friends, collecting stories about the Typhoon aircraft and its role during WWII.

For more information about the Typhoon, Harry Hardy Takeoff Typhoon view Harry Hardy's presentation on YouTube.
