Salute to Jack Allan

“Jack Allan Day” honoured a Nanton hero who flew Hurricanes in North Africa in World War II and then went on to become a Wing Commander in the post-war RCAF and the Commanding Officer of the famed GOLDEN HAWKS 1960-1962. Members of Jack’s family were in attendance. The highlight of the day was a flyby over the museum by the Snowbirds and Hawk One, the rejuvenated Golden Hawks F-86, as a tribute to Jack Allan.
