A Tribute to Wardair

My tribute to yet another great airline, that I also had the pleasure to work for; but this time, on the other side of the Atlantic. Mr. Ward also had the flair like Sir Freddie did, to provide the very best, also at a cheaper cost. Mr. Wards exploits with the Canadian Government are well documented. They too could not fight with the larger carriers, in this case, Air Canada.
