Crew Support- Aviano (CF 18)
Canadian CF-18 fighter-bombers
from 441 Squadron based in Cold Lake, Alberta, were deployed to the
NATO airbase in Aviano, Italy during the Kosovo air campaign. The CF-18s
were worked on by their ground crews in all weather conditions in support
of air operations. This painting, commissioned by 441 Squadron, was
one of eight created by several artists under special commission documenting
the squadron's operations during that air campaign.
Acrylic on 18x24 canvas board (2000).
Display: This work has been displayed at several locations
throughout Canada as part of the squadron's commemoration of its operations.

AIR POWER - A CONTINUING STORY
As our aviation history
is carried into the 21st century, the Canadian Air Force story continues.
Every day Canadian Air Force aircraft and crews are in the air supporting
Canadian defence and security needs. They patrol far off skies in support
of alliance operations in a 21st century setting dealing with new threats
to national and international security. They are transporting humanitarian
supplies around the globe and saving lives here at home. They are jet,
turboprop and rotary wing driven agents of the country's interests.
Although many questions exist as to the exact form of Canada's air forces
in the future, there is no doubt that those forces must exist in order
to protect national sovereignty and interests over the vast aerial dominion
that is Canada's claimed airspace.
