Canadian Typhoon Pilots

There are two main aspects of this project, the technical side of work that we study here at Typhoon Legacy, and the human side of the Typhoon story. While the team at Typhoon Legacy is immersed in technical details and production work, we are fortunate to cooperate with Anne Gafiuk to share the excellent work she has done documenting the stories of Canadian Typhoon crews. For details on these amazing men, please follow the link The Typhoon Project below.
