Vimy Flight – Birth of a Nation operates in alliance with A Nation Soars, a Department of Canadian Heritage-sponsored trilogy that commemorates Canada’s integral contributions with the evolution of First World War aviation. The trilogy includes a series of documentaries and a host of supporting educational initiatives that explore how aviation changed the course of the First World War. Led by Sound Venture Productions and The Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS), this is a truly national initiative, and one that highlights the lesser-known yet distinctly Canadian aspects of the air war.
