    Default Canadian RFC Aircraft Log Books

    These were among the stuff I bought this past weekend, 1 is an Engine Log Book the other is an Aircraft Log book, both RFC.
    As you can see the Aircraft Log book states the A/C crashed.
    Both of these were used in Canada at a Pilot Training Squadron.

    Holy !

    That's a fantastic WWI Log Book, no wonder it has "R.A.F. Can' on the right corner.

    Lot of history there.

    Thank you for posting.

    Cheers!

    The A/C log is for a JN4. The engine log book does not state which type of A/C it was on, however it gives the A/C number, however I see that A/C crashed also, however the engine was saved, after looking at these, I see that they are from 2 different Training Squadrons.

    Interesting... a Cutiss JN-4. Which make sense being in Training Squadron.

    I had never seen this sort of thing before I bought them, so I am guessing they are rare.
    Just think every WW1 A/C must of had these, guess they were thrown away at sometime.
