The Calgary RCAF Mess Dinner took place last Friday at the Calgary Aero Space Museum, celebrating the 85th Anniversary of the RCAF and the 100th anniversary of powered flight in Canada. Dan Dempsey, one of 5 Hawk One pilots, was the guest speaker at the dinner and spoke about the Canadian Air Demonstration teams histories and the Hawk One Project.

The Hawk One website tells the story and is very interesting.
