    Jim Milne of Invermere, British Columbia, now 97 years old, served as a navigation instructor with the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War Two. Recently he opens his flying logbook to reveal some amusing sketches.

    Nice article, Elinor. Jim was a good artist. Do you know if he continued drawing?

    No, he didn't. I think time was heavy on his hands when he wasn't flying, but after the war he had such a busy career and four kids that he never went back to it.

    Too bad. His skills at illustrating are pretty good.
