RESTORATION OF BUFFALO AIRCRAFT
August 9th was picked as
Peacekeeper Tribute Day because it was on the 9th of August, 1974, when a
Canadian Buffalo airplane carrying nine Canadian Peacekeepers was shot down
over Syria. All nine Canadians died and it was the largest number of
fatalities in a single day of our Peacekeepers. In Mount Hope,
Ontario, a Buffalo aircraft has been restored and given the identical paint
and numbering as the one that was shot down that fatal day. The plane
was dedicated on the 9th of August, 2009.
