from Winnipeg Sun
It's a grim statistic that puts into perspective the danger faced by those who served with Canada's aircrews in the First World War. The life expectancy of the nearly 23,000 Canadians who served with overseas aircrews was a mere few weeks. "(Life expectancy) varied during the war from four months to a few weeks, then to four hours at worst," said Paul Balcaen, exhibit co-ordinator at the Western Canadian Aviation Museum in Winnipeg.
