Delivered to Shell Canada Ltd on April 14, 1958 as CF-KLC, this Otter flew with Trans-Provincial Airlines from 1970 through 1993. The aircraft moved to the Province of Quebec in 1995 and had a Vazar turbine conversion in 2003. Damaged in 2006 when another landing Otter ran into C-FKLC, tearing off the right wing. When being moved by helicopter, it was dropped from a substantial height and destroyed. Never count out a DHC product however, as it was rebuilt and back flying in 2010. It's still current on the Canadian register at the time of uploading.
Seen here shortly after its arrival at the museum on 9 May 2005, following 37 years of storage at Deception Island, Antarctica. Unfortunately the plans to restore the aircraft, which was on loan from the British Antarctic Survey, never materialised and in January 2012 the aircraft was returned to BAS. It was removed from the museum and transported to a barn at Newhouse Farm, Leaden Roding, UK, reportedly for restoration by Glyn Craig. Very faded "British Antarctic Survey" titles were still visible on the rear fuselage. In the background is the forward fuselage of Comet R.2 XK695 (c/n 06030).
