CF-BAT  Aeronca LC                                (c/n  2046)


                                                    This Aeronca had been allotted US registration NC16548 although I suspect it went straight
                                                    to Canada from the Lunken Airport, Cincinnati plant without ever bearing the American number.
                                                    This rare shot is from the Gordon S. Williams collection and shows the aircraft whilst it was with
                                                    Gilbert's Aero School.  It later spent much of its life at Sea Island Airport, Vancouver and I saw
                                                    the remains of it when I first visited that mecca for civil aircraft fiends in 1956.
