Congratulations to @photojasinski, Third Place winner in the Military category of our annual photo contest!

Following an intense 50-centimetre snowstorm in February 2016 at the Ottawa International Airport, an @rcaf_arc CC-177 remained one of many aircraft overnighting on the ramp. Throughout his shift, Jan said he couldn’t help but admire the beast’s faded look in the midst of the storm. “I knew I couldn’t leave the airport unless I had at least one decent shot of the CC-177.” All of this year's winners appear in the print and digital editions of our new issue (link in bio). You can still download them as free digital wallpaper at skiesmag.com/wallpapers. #avgeek #aviation #photocontest #instagramaviation #RCAF #skiesmag #aviationisourpassion

Sinterklaas, Saint Nicholas' Day, is celebrated December 6; with the giving of gifts on St. Nicholas' Eve (December 5) in the northern parts of the Netherlands. Read the story of a young Dutch boy Vim and his family, and how a few Canadian soldiers changed one St Nicholas' Eve in wartime Holland in 1944:

On this day in December 12, 1942, in St. John's, Newfoundland a suspicious fire took place during World War II. The fire which occurred in a Knights of Columbus hostel and total of 99 people were killed, 80 of whom were military personnel, including my Grandfather (Joseph George Ambrose Lepine - Air Crew 1 RCAF, pictured here in uniform). Many believed that the fire was an incident of enemy sabotage orchestrated by agents of Nazi Germany. Within a few weeks, other suspicious fires occurred in St. John's that winter, at sites frequented by military personnel. #ww2 #warriors #military #militaryhistory #onthisday #indigenous #neverforgotten #rcaf #raf #royalcanadianairforce #stjohns #canada #metis #cree #manitoba #honor #honour #worldwar2 #nativeveteran

BERLIN IM BOMBENSTURM • Part XV •

Halifaxes usually carried the main bulk of incendiary bomb load on Bomber Command missions, so when they're hold on reserve after high losses over Berlin the British offensive lost a high percent of fire destruction. Here, armourers check over a mixed bomb load of small bomb containers (SBCs) filled with 30-lb incendiary bombs and three 1,000-lb MC bombs, loaded into the bomb-bay and wing cells of a Handley Page Halifax bomber of No. 405 Squadron RCAF at Pocklington, Yorkshire. ---------------------------------------------------- [Photo: © IWM (CH 17362).] .
