The Aviation Adventures of Halifax 57 Rescue Canada
In 1995, Karl Kjarsgaard walked into our office and told us about his dream. He wanted to honour the men of the Royal Canadian Air Force who had flown Halifax Aircraft in World War II. Since we had worked with veterans for 12 years, recording their stories, we decided to become part of the adventure. Working together with Karl and Jeff Jefferies, we picked up our cameras and travelled to Norway in search of an airplane.
This is that incredible story.
This 3 part QuickClip documentary was shot in Richmond Virginia, Geraardsbergen Belgium, Hamar, Norway, Vulcan,
Alberta and Gatineau, Quebec. In World War II, over 800 Americans volunteered to join the Royal Canadian Air Force
[ RCAF ] and Karl Kjarsgaard from Halifax 57 Rescue presents a honourary plaque to the Richmond Virginia War Memorial. The short documentary reveals why some of these men went to war.
