Top brass from the Canadian Royal Air Force and the RAF are converging on Burn, near Selby to recognise and commemorate the heroism of a Canadian bomber squadron formed in the village exactly 70 years ago. The squadron is today the Canadian equivalent of the British Red Arrows.
The squadron flew around 320 sorties from Burn, losing 17 of their Wellington bombers and 85 crew, including Squadron Leader S Marshall, Squadron Leader W E Mulford, one of the original Flight Commanders of the Squadron.
