RCAF 98th Anniversary Lapel Pins

 

Following a well-established Borden tradition, commemorative pins were produced again this year to mark the anniversary of the birth of the Royal Canadian Air Force on April 1st, 1924.  The tradition of producing buttons or pins featuring a different theme aircraft each year goes back more than three decades in Borden, “Birthplace of the RCAF.”  Today, the tradition is kept alive through the efforts of 441 (Huronia) Wing, RCAF Association - Barrie.

 

As this year marked the 40th anniversary of the CF-188 Hornet fighter - attack aircraft. In 1980, the F/A-18 was selected as the winner of the New Fighter Aircraft Project competition and awarded a production order; deliveries of the CF-18 to the Canadian Armed Forces began in 1982. CF-18s have supported North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) air sovereignty patrols and participated in combat during the Gulf War in 1991, the Kosovo War in the late 1990s, and as part of the Canadian contribution to the international Libyan no-fly zone in 2011. CF-18s were also part of the Canadian contribution to the military intervention against ISILOperation Impact

 

RCAF 98th Anniversary pins will be for sale later this spring at $5.00 each (+ shipping) through 441 Wing RCAFA.  Note that a small selection of previous years' pins is also available. Contact Norm Marion, (705) 686-3941, norm.marion@amtelecom.net
