CF-GLX  Canadian Vickers PBV-1A Canso                      (c/n  CV-560)


                                                       This Canso (Catalina) was built for the USAAF as an OA-10A, serial 44-34049.   Post war, it
                                                       went to Queen Chartlotte Airlines and then to Pacific Western, in whose markings it is seen here
                                                       in my shot taken at Vancouver in 1961.   Later in its life it became a water bomber with Avalon
                                                       Aviation out of Parry Sound, Ontario.  It was retired there and is, I believe, currently in storage.
