Other exhibits included metal work, cabinet making, leather tooling, plastic work and toy making." 1_2534: "Anne Montgomery, 13-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Marshall Montgomery, Fairview avenue, Yarmouth Heights, was keenly interested in the fighting and training planes on exhibition at the Aylmer Air Station, Saturday, when National Air Force Day was observed. Anne very recently made her solo flight at the civic airport, Yarmouth Centre, and is believed to be the youngest girl pilot in Ontario. She attended the open house at Aylmer with her father and brother, Marshall (Sonny) Montgomery Jr., who has also made solo flights and qualified for civilian pilot papers. Anne is shown inspecting one of the planes on display in No. 5 hangar." 1_2535: "The exhibition of Second World War fighting craft in No. 5 hanger at the Aylmer Air Station held a special appeal for the children, Saturday afternoon, during the observance of National Air Day. Hundreds availed themselves of the opportunity to "explore" the bombers and fighters. One group was photographed as the youngsters were climbing over a German Messerschmidt."

Although it serves as a training aircraft, the Buffalo's main role is as a tactical transport, hauling both personnel and cargo. The aircraft normally carries a crew of four and boasts a gross flying weight of more than 20 tons. Despite its size, the aircraft landed and took off from the local airport with ease."
