I think these were two of 44 planes originally built for the Ontario government. We had a nice chat with the curator who was unaware that OBU spent time on the Charlottes. It was subsequently sold to someone in the US and is still flying, according to him.
Hi … we may well have followed the same route , but I think you may have been some weeks ahead of us . Driving through Saskatchewan we did see what seemed to be a 19 heading west .
We definitely enjoyed the museum . Wolf spent a lot of hours flying a Beaver , says it's the best bush plane Dehavilland built . The one he was happy to avoid was the Norseman , they had one in Nakina during our time up there nicknamed the " flying coffin " , when they lose power there is no gliding - drops like a rock . Wolf has flown over 20 different planes ( bush, crop spraying and in the Arctic ) .
