CF-BXO    Supermarine Stranraer 


                                           This image came from the vast Jennifer Gradidge collection.   If the actual photographer will
                                           contact me, I will ensure source credit.  This Stranraer was one of 14 civilianized RCAF
                                           machines after WW II and languished at Sea Island Airport, Vancouver for many years
                                           before being rescued and added to the RAF Museum collection at Hendon, where it now
                                           reposes.  It was one of the Queen Charlotte Airlines craft which plied the routes between
                                          Vancouver Island and the mainland in the 1940s.   Johan Visschedijk has a nice thumbnail
