HMCS Bonaventure (CVL22)




1957 to 1960s era style deck



HMCS Bonaventure (CVL 22) was a Majestic class aircraft carrier. She served in the Royal Canadian Navy and Canadian Forces Maritime Command from 1957 to 1970 and was the third and the last aircraft carrier to serve Canada. The ship was laid down for the British Royal Navy as HMS Powerful in November 1943. At the end of World War II, work on the ship was suspended in 1946. At the time of purchase, it was decided to incorporate new aircraft carrier technologies into the design. Bonaventure never saw action during her career having only peripheral, non-combat roles. However, she was involved in major NATO fleet-at-sea patrol during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

WOW!!! The Bonnie. I've been onboard her a few times back in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Thank you MigBuster.

***UPDATE*** 5.8.16


I forgot all about the Bonnie being here. The memories I am playing back in my minds eye are bringing a

little tear to my Eyeball. I sure am proud to say I KNEW the Bonnie better than most civilians older than me.

I had a few years of being allowed to board her with no problems. I was 7 when I started delivering the

Newspaper's to all the Naval Ships in dock with an older friend. Three years later she was sold to Japan

to make razor blades.(true sea story, ask any drunken sailor). Canada needs another Carrier.
