Seventy years ago, Canadian, British and American troops were pushing across Belgium, Holland and the remnants of occupied France, with the Germans backed up to the Fatherland. Typhoon pilots added to the lethal threats of flak and enemy fighters, a buffet of dangers that made their life expectancy one of the shortest in the air war—small arms fire, collision with terrain, heavy machine guns from armoured vehicles and tanks, and bad weather. One look at the massive Hawker Typhoon from this angle and you understand why it struck fear into the hearts of German tank crews and infantry.
To commemorate the start of the Typhoon’s stay in Canada and the 70th anniversary of Operation Overlord, the CASM called upon the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum and Vintage Wings of Canada. The first choice for escort duty would have been aircraft types that had participated alongside the Hawker Typhoon in Operation Overlord and the subsequent defeat of the Nazis—a Supermarine Spitfire and a P-51 Mustang perhaps.
The Vintage Wings of Canada 442 Squadron P-51 Mustang was also chosen and this was particularly appropriate, for 442 worked side by side with Typhoon units as they swept inexorably across France and the Lowlands towards Germany. In the early morning of 6 June 2014, 70 years to the day that Canadian boys were fighting their way through the cobbled streets of Courseulles-sur-mer and Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer, and the Typhoon pilots of 440 Squadron were pounding the advancing German troops and armour through a hailstorm of ground fire, I found myself in the back seat of a Second World War fighter aircraft snugged into the left wing of a big DC-3 as it flew on currents of Canadian air. We were four very lucky Canadians, Mike Potter, Rob Erdos, Peter Handley and me—able to pay homage to a group of Canadian heroes with aircraft dedicated to other heroes.
Mike Potter in The Robillard Brothers P-51D Mustang and Rob Erdos in The Stocky Edwards P-40N Kittyhawk show two thumbs up, indicating they are good to go.
Mike Potter swings in behind the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s DC-3 Dakota as she begins her roll down Runway 27. Looking across the wing of the Mustang, Handley captures the Stocky Edwards P-40 sliding into the left wing, as the Dakota leads the formation down the Ottawa River on the way to downtown Ottawa.
From the starboard side of the Dakota, CWHM photographer Annette Koolsbergen shows just how tight the formation was. Having skirted the downtown area in a counter-clockwise circuit, the formation heads to a flypast of Parliament Hill. Downtown Ottawa sits under a hazy and glowering sky as Leon Evans and Sten Palbom lead us toward Parliament before heading to the Ottawa International Airport. Setting up on the crosswind leg, Evans brings the Dak close to Canadian Forces Station Leitrim (seen above fuselage), Canada’s oldest operational signal intelligence collection station. After the Dakota and P-40 landed at Ottawa International, Potter breaks and looks for the field to begin his let down. In the Esso Avitat FBO, veteran Typhoon pilots were catching up with each other as they assembled before boarding the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum’s Dakota, which awaits in the background.
Flight Lieutenant John Brown Friedlander, a Typhoon pilot with 181 Squadron RAF, greets an old friend at the Esso Avitat. At the Esso Avitat FBO lounge, Mustang pilot and Vintage Wings of Canada founder Mike Potter stops to speak to an old friend—Flying Officer Ken Hanna, DFC of Ottawa.
Flight Lieutenant Ken Hanna chats with an FBO attendant as he leads the group of Typhoon pilots out to the DC-3. Heading out to the Dak and another date with history, the Typhoon veterans looked pretty proud. Photographer Handley, squeezed into the rear seat of the Mustang, captures Mike Potter hooking up his parachute harness before firing up the aircraft.
CWHM Dak pilots Leon Evans and Sten Palbom have both engines warmed up nicely on the ramp at Ottawa International Airport.
The three-ship formation thunders over the City of Gatineau with Ottawa off their port wings. After escorting the Dak in a single flypast of the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, Rob Erdos and Mike Potter headed across to Gatineau and a short bit of formation practice. At the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, the crowd awaits the arrival of the veterans, some of whom probably had never seen a Typhoon since the war was over. At the Canada Aviation and Space Museum at Rockcliffe, the two escorting fighters broke away and let the Dakota do a solo pass on its own for the crowds below.

The only complete Hawker Typhoon in the world today has been brought to the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa. Compare this photo with the first photo of a Typhoon from 1944—still looking impressive and deadly after 70 years.

On that day, 70 years ago, Allied soldiers, sailors and airmen pulled off one of the most complicated battle plans ever devised. There was still half a year of dying still to be done and much of Germany to be laid waste. The Typhoon was designed to be a super powerful and lethal air superiority fighter for the mid-level air war.
Everyone gave of their time and their dedication to make this happen from the huge hearted Michael Potter, to the amazing Dave Rohr from Canadian Warplane Heritage, my fabulous crew at the Museum, the boys at RAFM, the RCAF and the incredible pilots and crews that flew on June 6th 2014. In fact, Rocky flew a Mustang with RCAF Serial, KH661 (the aircraft represented by the Vintage Wings Mustang) many times while pushing the Germans further and further back towards Berlin at the end of the war.
Across from us on the Dak’s right wing flew the legendary P-51 Mustang and two friends. They will keep the thumbs up until acknowledged by co-pilot Sten Palbom in the cockpit of the Dakota. Mike Potter is locked on his formation reference points and cannot enjoy the view at all, while Peter Handley machine guns away from the back seat.
Here we see the P-40 over the University of Ottawa football field, with the Rideau River snaking by. The Mustang is primped and polished for this honourable flight, but 70 years ago, the Typhoons of the RCAF and RAF would have been mud-splattered, oil-stained and patched. This day, only the four men in the escort aircraft would require parachutes, with the veteran fighter pilots borne aloft in relative and very deserving comfort. Below, people were no doubt curious as to what was the special event and if they paused to think what day it was, they would no doubt connect the aircraft with some sort of D-Day memorial. The honoured guests in the Dakota were provided with a first class view of the very place where war was declared in 1939 and where, on 6 June 1944, Prime Minister W.L. Here Rob slides in to Mike’s wing as they cross into suburban Gatineau coming out of Rockcliffe.
Spooner, a 438 Squadron Typhoon pilot during the Second World War, was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and was gazetted after war’s end, in July 1945. For the next two years, it will become one of the most asked for and photographed exhibits at the world-class facility. While the core gamplay stays the same, a number of interesting new gameplay mechanics are added.
The tank in the back is the Nuclear Overlord upgraded with Nuclear Shells (available at Rank 5) which will further increase its firepower.
Now, three months later, we offer up a view of a very special day and the men we were honoured to honour. Soon, Canadian ground forces and their RCAF brothers were beginning a sweep through Holland.
At the altitudes it was designed for (above 15,000 feet), it lacked the promised performance. They conducted their business at the front, close to the ground fighting, and they fought the Wermacht as well as the Luftwaffe.
Gentlemen, for one brief shining moment you gave these Typhoon pilots the thank you they deserve.
A group so honoured should also be escorted in the air, so that those on the ground in Ottawa who might see them would know that something very special was flying overhead on what, for most, would just be another working day. Being French speaking, he was able to evade capture and return to flying in England via Spain and Gibraltar. Sitting in the back behind Rob, I could feel the greatness carried in that DC-3, watch her big rudder flick, her engines thunder as she proudly carried those great once young men who gave us so much.


In 1952, after 13 years with Eastern, it went to North Central Airlines, the former Wisconsin Central Airlines, which operated until 1963. 1 Special Wireless Station and renamed Ottawa Wireless Station in 1949, CFS Leitrim acquired its current name in 1966. Harry Hardy was a typhoon pilot with 440 Vampire Squadron of the RCAF, flying a total of 96 ops from D-Day to the crossing of the Rhine. Prior to being put on display, the Tiffy was painted in the makings of I8-T, a 440 Vampire Squadron Typhoon. In addition the overall visual quality is greaty improved, including new models, textures, FX and an improved User-Interface, available in full-HD resolution.
Hawker Typhoon pilots of the RCAF and the RAF were as much a part of this massive and deadly ground war as a mortar or machine gun team on the ground.
Along with the Russian-built Ilyushin Il-2 Sturmovik, it was the most successful ground attack fighter of the Second World War. Vintage Wings of Canada was called upon to provide the escort in the form of two Second World War fighters. Though no Curtiss Kittyhawks took part in the closing battles on the Western Front, it was dedicated to a man who certainly did—Wing Commander Stocky Edwards. Rocky flew Kittyhawks in the Aleutians and the west coast and was transferred to Britain in late 1943 at the age of just 19 to form the new 442 Squadron.
The DC-3 flew commercially until acquired by Dennis Bradley, who then donated it to the Museum in 1981. Today, 480 military and civilian work there collecting and analyzing radio and other communications from around the world. King repeated his radio address from earlier in the day, along with messages from Supreme Commander Gen.
On one occasion, Flight Lieutenant Spooner’s aircraft was hit by the flying debris of an exploding ammunition train.
For an interesting video of Friedlander speaking about his experiences on Typhoons at The Vimy Memorial in France, click here.
He named his aircraft Pulverizer and he must have lost a few aircraft through combat damage as the last one was called Pulverizer IV. While their Spitfire- and Mustang-flying brothers were duelling with the Luftwaffe in the thin blue air at altitudes where they chalked contrails like a football playbook and while their Bomber Command brethren steeled their hearts on a steady course through clouds of flak and the raking fire of night fighters, the ground attacking Typhoon pilots engaged an enemy without wings. Displaying speed and agility, combined with size, stability and armour, the Typhoon became a fighter match for the Focke Wulf FW-190 as well as one of the finest ground attack aircraft of the Second World War. During its restoration, and under the direction of Vintage Wings, Pioneer Aero of Auckland, New Zealand installed a second seat and set of controls. Despite this and intense anti-aircraft fire from the enemy’s defences he pressed home his attack on the remaining targets. For a fascinating video of Hardy relating his personal experiences and sharing his personal photographs from the war, click here and here. We must never forget, they were young men who stood fast for everything we are today, a great country where amazing men and women move mountains and still say, "I was just doing my job". This unit operated their Typhoons from several RAF airfields in England including RAF Snailwell, RAF Odiham and RAF Hurn. King and Opposition Leader Gordon Graydon also discussed expediting parliamentary business in the wake of D-Day. As a flight commander this officer has always displayed brilliant leadership and a fine fighting spirit.
They were involved in operations against V-1 Buzz Bomb launch sites and in support of the D-Day landings. Initially, as in the case of the RAAF units, the red was overpainted with white but this compromised the camouflage and the normal roundel blue was mixed 50:50 with white. Following D-Day, they relocated behind the lines and followed advances across Europe and into Germany, seeking ground targets of opportunity. Many aircraft in the CBI theatre used roundels and fin flashes of approximately half the normal dimensions, perhaps because the amount of white in the normal sized roundels, when seen against a dark green jungle canopy, was too obvious to the enemy above. He has displayed a high standard of leadership, skill and courage and has contributed materially to the success of the squadron. In December, 1944, he flew one of a formation of aircraft detailed to attack enemy vehicles in the Saint-Vith area.
