The Northwest Orient Flight 324 Memorial is a simple monument located right outside Sandspit Airport (YZP), immediately under the Canadian, BC and RCAF flags. It contains two plaques – one briefly outlining the tragedy of Flight 324 and the other a touching statement from then British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. As with most memorials of this type, the purpose is two-fold: 1) To remember those who perished on that fateful winter day; and, 2) To allow those of us who visit the memorial to reflect on the fragility of life and consider what we, as human beings, have done with it up to that point in time. In short, we are offered an all too brief moment of philosophical reflection.

At the same time, this memorial also provides a window through which to view the importance of YZP to Canada’s military history. Beginning in the early 1940s, Sandspit Airport played a key role in the defence of the west coast as a staging airport for Alaska-bound aircraft and an emergency field. Interestingly, it was this role as an “emergency field” which led to Northwest Orient Flight 324 attempting to land at YZP. Since then, though, the airport has grown into a major transport hub for the archipelago, welcoming military, charter and passenger aircraft.

In a roundabout way, then, the Northwest Orient Flight 324 Memorial has ingrained itself into the social fabric of Moresby Island. It is an important point of remembrance, yes, but it also alludes to the area’s rich history as it pertains to the RCAF and beyond.
