shot was sent to me by Walter Wolfe whose grandfather owned Northland
Company which was set up to support the Wolfe
Construction Company, a road construction
outfit. Unfortunately the registration does not show on this
image. Anyway, the company was
in South Porcupine and, in fact, my 1948 Canadian register indicates
that this bird was,
at that time, owned by the Porcupine Flying Club. The
Waco was one of three aircraft owned
by Northland, there
being another Waco which was written off in a crash at Timmins in the
1940s plus the Stinson CF-BIM.
CF-BDW still exists and is now part of the Stan Reynolds
Aviation Museum in Edmonton.
