Returning to Canada in 1971, it's pictured with a small Pacific Western Airlines sticker continuing a commuter agreement left over from previous owner West Coast Airlines. Air BC would later partner with CPAir until bought by Air Canada. The aircraft has been flying Skydivers most recently as N203SF.

Running up the engine outside Air BC's hangar, this Beaver was registered to the airline, but did not received their colors. Possibly leased to Air Nootka when photographed, it was certainly with that airline later. The aircraft is currently flying in Quebec at the time of uploading.
