CF-JDO 1959 MEMORIAL EXHIBIT

Help us tell their extraordinary story and preserve the memory of F/O Raymond Gran DFC and Saskatchewan Conservation officer Harold Thompson. Help us tell the story of their downed Cessna 180 CF-JDO, which was recovered after 59 years in Peter Pond Lake.

Me109 MESSERSCHMITT (1940’s)

During World War II, two of the most successful fighters of aviation history faced one against the other: these two aircraft were the legendary Supermarine Spitfire and its German counterpart, the formidable Me109. The Me109 shot down more Allied planes than any other aircraft, and stayed in service longer than most, having entered combat in the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), fighting through World War II (1939-1945). In post WWII, between 1945 & 1948, most Bf 109s were scrapped or destroyed along with most its metal fabricating equipment.
