Recent Arrivals Winged Writings Perhaps there's something in the water at the Lester B. Pearson Building that predisposes employees to write books. Peter Pigott, a Treaty Custodian at Foreign Affairs Canada has just released his 12th book titled On Canadian Wings. Mr. Pigott wrote his first book while posted in Hong Kong. Upon returning to Ottawa after a posting in The Hague, he began to take writing more seriously.
Be prepared to soar! Whether you are an aviation enthusiast, history buff, or air traveller, don‘t miss the third in a series of photo essays on aviation in Canada, covering almost 100 years of flight by Canadians. Dramatic visuals accompany each step of aviation‘s advances, from Canada‘s first military aircraft to Billy Bishop‘s Nieuport, from the earliest bush planes to the beginnings of passenger travel. This comprehensive history showcases 50 aircraft. Whether famous or forgotten, all were designed, built, and/or flown by Canadians. Insightful analysis is complemented by gorgeous photos, many in colour, some with rare archival significance. The history of our desire to conquer gravity is encapsulated within these covers.
