HRM Monument #26: Donald Saunders Wing

Wing Commander Donald W. Saunders was an instructor with the Halifax Flying Corps during WWI, and worked as an instructor for the Royal Canadian Air Force in WWII. From 1931 to 1987 Wing Commander Donald W. Saunders was the manager of the Halifax Municipal Airport. To commemorate Mr. Saunders' contributions to the development of aviation in Halifax, the citizens of Halifax erected this statue in Saunders Park, which was named after Donald Saunders, and is located on a section of the old Halifax Municipal Airport.
