Boston in Service with Royal Canadian Air Force

Last revised August 5, 2000

The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) managed to acquire several Bostons that were intended for the RAF. Examples of which I am aware are Boston III (AL672), one Boston IIIA (BZ385) and one Boston IV (BZ410). I am unaware of the operational history of Bostons with the RCAF. Perhaps there are those out there who have more information.
