This 1960 Otter was first with the Royal Canadian Air Force with serial 9427. The aircraft was damaged in a training accident in February 1965 and sold rather than repaired. Northway Aviation bought and rebuilt it, registering the aircraft CF-VVY in 1967. Kenmore Air acquired the floatplane from Air Roberval in July 2016 and is pictured undergoing a refurbishment. It entered service with them on 30 December 2016 as N709KA. A Vazar turbine conversion done in the winter of 1999 / 2000 made the rebuild a little more simple than usual.
