John Rayner arrived at No. 31 with the R.A.F. in 1940. Although he wasn’t a pilot, John loved the Harvard aircraft and in his honour the Rayner family had a Harvard flypast when his ashes were being buried at Glenhaven Cemetery, Kingston, on July 21, 2014. The pilot was Allan Paige of the Canadian Harvard Association, Tillsonburg, Ontario. He is pictured at the Kingston airport after the ceremony.
These two brief video clips give you the sight and sound of a low-flying Harvard.
