National Air Force Museum of Canada’s “senior squadron” a national treasure
Kevin Windsor has more than 20 years of experience as a curator in several museums across Ontario, but his latest posting is very special. He is the executive director of the National Air Force Museum of Canada in Trenton, Ontario, and interacts daily with a special crew.
“We have more than 120 volunteers, with more than 75 percent retired military,” he says. “Our oldest is 96. They do everything from greeting visitors, staffing the gift shop, and giving guided tours, to working on aircraft restoration and education programs, and working on the exhibits.”
