The Royal Flying Corps in Canada

Bill Hunt’s Latest Book finally Gets Off the Ground

On Saturday, Dundurn Press and author, C.W. Hunt, formally launched “Dancing in the Sky” at a standing room only reception in Deseronto.  This long-awaited work deals with the early days of aviation in Canada, particularly with the role of the RAF in kick-starting what became the RCAF.  One of the most interesting stories in the book concerns the connection with Vernon and Irene Castle, the famous dance-instructors.  The book is almost a must for air and  military enthusiasts, but it is a good read for just about anybody who enjoys adventure, tragedy and a smattering of Canadian politics.
