TF-RVG  Canadian Vickers  OA-10A Canso                   (c/n CV-605)


                                   Like Flugfelag Islands, Loftleidir also served coastal communities with Catalinas.  Unlike the
                                   former carrier's however, Loftleidir's two (TF-RVG and TF-RVR) were both ex Canadian
                                   Cansos. TF-RVG was named "Vestfirdingur" and is seen here taxiing out for take off at
                                   Reykjavik Airport in the early 1950s.  TF-RVG was the former Bu68058 (44-34094) and
                                   wound up in Canada as a firebomber (CF-DFB, later C-FDFB).  It is now on static display
                                   at the Heritage Museum in Botwood, Newfoundland, Canada.
