Military Aviation Chronicles’ editorial centre is based within what was once ‘British East Florida’. This region continues to be ‘home’ for thousands of British and Canadian residents.

Military Aviation Chronicles’ editor is associated with the Canadian charitable organisation ‘Airplane Hunters‘ in Ottawa, Ontario, and also maintains cooperative connections with the charitable organisations ‘Bomber Command Museum of Canada‘ and ‘Halifax 57 Rescue (Canada)‘. This website features articles relating to the United Kingdom and Commonwealth and former British colonies, protectorates and Israel, which was previously under the British Mandate for Palestine. An associated major theme of this repository is the United States’ historic military aviation connections to the aerial forces of the referenced nations.

Military Aviation Chronicles and the above entities were principal organisers and sponsors of ceremonies held in January 2016 to belatedly pay homage to those Floridians who voluntarily served in the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and Royal Air Force (RAF) during the Second World War. The first event was held at ‘The Royal Canadian Legion Post 144’ in Clearwater and the second at Winter Haven Regional Airport (KGIF). An associated ‘Colorado Aviation Historical Society & Colorado Aviation Hall of Fame’ ceremony took place on 14th October 2017 in Lakewood, Colorado. Subsequently, two additional ‘Colorado Aviation Hall of Fame’ inductions of RCAF-Coloradans were held in 2018 and 2019. Memorial plaques are on indefinite display inside the KGIF Terminal.

Notably, Military Aviation Chronicles and its partners continue to promote the legacies of RCAF and RAF Americans in conjunction with Bomber Command Museum of Canada. Readers may contact Military Aviation Chronicles via the following e-mail address: MilitaryAviationChronicles@Gmail.com
