Vickers PBV-1A Canso
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.
