A sailor volunteers at the Aviation and Space Museum
By CPO1 Pat Devenish

“The first prototype Supermarine
Spitfire flew March 5, 1936…The
museum example is a Mark IX vari-
ant and depicts an aircraft of RCAF
421 Squadron complete with the
Red Indian Head logo of McColl-
Frontenac Oil Company (later Tex-
aco Canada) who were patrons of
421 Squadron…The highest scor-
ing Spitfire ace was a Canadian;
George ‘Buzz’ Beurling who fin-
ished the war with 33 1/3 kills.”

tours of aircraft and wandering the

itors to Canada’s Aviation and
Space Museum in Ottawa? Believe

mon question I received. The most

Hitting the deck for fitness at sea
By LS Korey Tynes
Op METRIC - HMCS Charlottetown

I   walk up to the flight deck and
   call the bridge to open the hangar
door. It always brings a smile to my
face looking at the picturesque
view of the Mediterranean Sea. The
background of my fitness class is
endless water upon the horizon.
   My role as EXPRES Test Coor-
dinator makes the crew’s fitness a
subject that I hold close to my
heart. Ultimately, I want to see ev-
eryone be successful and to achieve
the benefits that come with leading
a physically active lifestyle – that is
what drives me to want to help ev-
eryone in whatever way I can.
