Such was the impact of World War 2 on Canada that, before the end, its air force had grown to become the forth largest such service in the world. Many of its "wings" were primary foreign types, originating from Britain and the United States, but there was also the aspect of local production of these systems that evolved the Canadian aviation industry to new heights. The influence that the war had on the nation gave rise to an impressive aero-industry that continued to deliver into the Cold War years - though ultimately done in by politics and funding issues. Nevertheless, the Canadian contribution to the air war of World War 2 should never be overlooked.
