BOOK – Wings Over High River
Veteran pilot Gordon Jones of High River first flew a Tiger Moth aircraft when he learned to fly as an 18 year old in 1941 at an RCAF base at High River.
As his biography was released, this remarkable pilot owned and continued to fly Tiger Moth #1214, one of the aircraft in which he taught students at #5 Elementary Flying Training School (High River) during World War II. For more than twenty years, Gordon had performed fly-pasts over special events at the Bomber Command Museum of Canada. His flying career is unique in the history of Canadian aviation -but there is much more than flying to Gordon’s story . . .
In Gordon’s biography, author Anne Gafiuk has done a remarkable job of creating a very thorough record of Gordon’s career, presenting his story in a most readable and interesting way utilizing numerous photos, documents, and other images. (8.5″x11″; 298 pages)
