Daring pilots of Cold War era gather for Victoria reunion
from The Vancouver Sun
Sixty years ago, daring young NATO pilots were protecting the skies over Cold War Europe from the Soviet menace. "We were a formidable force," said Syd Burrows, 84, of Comox. "The Russians were threatening all the time — like they are today." Burrows helped bring more than 400 former Royal Canadian Air Force jet fighter pilots and their family members to Victoria for a reunion. The Canadian pilots were the protective forces for the West German populace, he recalled.
