Subject: The five members of the Aerial Experimental Association that built and flew the Silver Dart at Baddeck, NS, painted for the 100th anniversary of the first powered flight in Canada in 2009. This was also the 50th anniversary of the cancellation of the Avro Arrow. The painting symbolizes how far aviation had advanced from The Silver Dart to the Arrow in only 50 years.
