Friends of Boomer's Legacy Supporting Y2K Spitfire Homecoming

The iconic Mark IX Spitfire aircraft Y2K, whose reconstruction was started in Comox, BC in 2000, is returning to the Valley in August 2018 for a once-in-a-lifetime celebration event.

Following an historic journey across Canada, a gala banquet, in honor of W/C (ret’d) Stocky Edwards will be held on 08 Aug at 14 Hangar, 19 Wing. Tickets to this event are now available, but extremely limited. Go to to buy yours today, or simply for some more information.

Revenues from this event will go to newly formed The Stocky Edwards Legacy Trust, a fund designed to support young Canadians in pursuit of a career in aviation.

Although not exactly the same as the Boomer's Legacy Trust Fund, this new initiative pays tribute to the selfless acts of a soldier by helping others - and we see it as walking hand-in-hand alongside our own cause.
The Spitfire will remain in the Comox Valley area for several weeks, conducting several flying displays as well as being available for static viewing. For further information on all the events, go to their website or contact the organizers at, or at 250 898-1330.
