Wings of a Continent

Top of page

This film describes the strategic significance of air transportation in Canada. Bush pilots first pointed to the possibilities of continental aviation and today this has been developed from a game into a science. Every cog in the Trans-Canada Airlines machine counts, from the man at the weather station to the pilot at the controls. In wartime, these airways have a vital part to play, connecting the far-flung industries of the Dominion and uniting the battle front in Europe with that in the Pacific.
