Clean, tight, unmarked; absolute minimal wear; appears unread; Here is a book to enrich any keen reader's understanding of Canada's legendary aviation industry from WWII to modern times. R.D. "Dick" Richmond's personal story, A Life in Canadian Aerospace 1942-1992 sets a new standard for the aeronautical autobiography. Dick tells his story from boyhood to joining the National Research Council early in WWII as a fresh aeronautical graduate. He works on such NRC R&D projects as re-engineering a Fairey Battle with a Wright Cyclone. Moving to Fairchild, he has such challenging assignments as proving target-towing gear for an RCAF Bolingbroke, and producing (overnight) skis for rescuing some Ferry Command Hudsons stranded in Labrador. The war over, Dick joins the design team for the Fairchild Husky bush plane, works on the Burnelli "flying wing" at Cartierville, then does landmark work on the prototype North Star. This is all new, fascinating history in which any CANAV fan will revel.
