Exhibit honors WWII pilots Two scale model World War II-era airplanes made by history enthusiast Don Dwan will be on display at the Waldwick Library through Monday, Nov. 30. The exhibit honors the young American volunteers who went to Canada and England to fly in the Royal Air Force before America entered World War II. There were three Eagle Squadrons comprising 241 American pilots, of whom 108 did not survive the war. They were called the Eagle Squadrons because the pilots were Americans and the eagle is America’s national symbol. Featured in the exhibit are models of the Hawker Hurricane flown by Pilot Officer Eugene “Red” Tobin of Los Angeles, and the Supermarine Spitfire flown by Pilot Officer Gilmore Daniel of Skiatook, Oklahoma. At the age of 15, Daniel was the youngest Eagle flying in combat. A veteran of the Korean War, Dwan has built over 3,000 scale models --mostly airplanes --since he picked up the hobby at the age of 14. The finely painted, carefully assembled models on display reflect the former Navy gunner’s passion for propeller-driven planes and military history. The library is located at 19 East Prospect Street in Waldwick. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information call (201) 652-5104.
