CF-DFU  Noorduyn Norseman IV                        (c/n  31)


                                                 This was parked out at PWA's base at Sea Island Airport, Vancouver in 1959.   Originally
                                                 the RCAF's 2458, it was declared war surplus in February 1946 and was sold to M and C
                                                 Aviation of Port Albert.  They sold it on to Saskatewan Government Airways.  Queen Charlotte
                                                 Airlines purchased it in 1950 and it had a crash at Comox, B.C. in February of 1952.   Clearly
                                                 it must have been repaired since Pacific Western acquired it in 1956 when they bought out
                                                 QCA.   Shortly after this shot was taken it was sold to BC Airlines Ltd, also of Vancouver.
                                                 On 28 February 1962 a float fitting gave way whilst landing and the aircraft capsized.
                                                 Fortunately, there were no serious injuries.
