Douglas Bader, who commanded 242 Canadian Squadron during the Battle of Britain, in World War 2, is accompanied by a woman, as he arrives at an airport in Canada. They descend steps from Trans Canada airliner. Officials at the airport welcome him. He converses with the officials before driving away in a car. (Note: Douglas Bader was Leader of an all-Canadian RAF Squadron in World War II, despite having lost both legs in a plane crash before the war. He was captured by the Germans after parachuting from his aircraft. Replacement aluminum legs were airdropped for him, with German permission, while he was in captivity.)
