No Joke!

Yes, I know it's April Fool's Day but it's also the birthday of the Royal Canadian Air Force.  This year marks the 90th anniversary of the RCAF. I know my Dad would have been flying his Air Force Roundel flag. He was very proud of being in the Air Force.

Dad loved all things to do with aviation. I think that he took pictures of any aircraft that he saw and had loads of books too.  

This is the current Roundel flag of the RCAF. I have one like this, someday I'm going to put a flag pole out front so that I can fly it. Dad's flag was the old Roundel with the Union Jack in the corner where the Canadian flag is on this one.
