With the registration and airline titles just visible. Contrary to what is officially claimed, this aircraft did not become C-GTXW in 1987. Instead, this Commando was destroyed in an accident when it was airlifted from Miami to a museum in 1989.

A familiar sight at FLL for at least 10 years for sure, but maybe more. By the time I took this shot, and even though a tug was towing it, it had been reported as withdrawn from use and stored since since Mar 86. In 93 it was placed on display, in Marine markings, at the Pensacola NAS Museum painted as 39611.

You would think it hadn't moved in three years looking back at Ruud's photo of it. Sadly it was written off when it hit a 2800 foot ridge near Mount Redoubt 20 Dec 2000 en route Nondalton to Kenai (AK) whilst attempting to maintain VFR in marginal weather conditions.

Delivered to the USAAF as 44-61071, put into storage in India after the war, then flew with operators from Venezuela, Panama and the Dominican Republic from 1955 until withdrawal from use in 1976. Resurrected to fly with several Canadian airlines and with Buffalo since 2001. Its belly-landing in Déline on September 25, 2015 was no mean feat as the crew managed to get a crippled freighter onto a gravel airstrip without navaids, in solid IFR weather.

Became 9Q-CRP in1968 then disappeared. Myself and two friends had just arrived on a Swissair Caravelle (supposedly) night flight from Gatwick. Fog at Zurich had kept us grounded until the morning so we were able to get this on arrival.

"Even in Yellowknife, everybody looks when a C-46 gets airborne"... The sound volume that goes with it may have to do with that! TXW is leaving in the morning on another Valley Run, packed with groceries and sundries. On the upper fuselage, just behind the cockpit door, the shade of its former RANSA titles is visible. That company operated her from 1955 until 1966.
