UH, WHAT'S THIS DIAL FOR? Canadian Snowbird pilots do a pre-flight check [above]. Below, 80 years after being shot down by a Canadian pilot, the Red Baron took to the skies over London.

THE ULTIMATE ANTI-SEPARATIST WEAPON – DOESN'T EVEN REQUIRE BOMBS. The CF-18, based in Bagatville, Quebec [above]. Below, defying the laws of gravity the YAK-55M put on a jaw-dropping show. Farther down, long lines for the Michigan ANG C130. At the bottom, the Chevy Shockwave jet truck billows flames before challenging a plane to a race.
