This North Star served with the RCAF from 8 March 1948 until 27 September 1965. It wears a UN flag here. It carried UN troops to Congo in 1960. The belly radar was supposedly fitted 'briefly' during the late 1950s. As N8022, the aircraft flew in the Caribbean until about 1980, allegedly used in smuggling operations.

The nose section of RCAF 17522, a North Star built by Canadair for the RCAF. This aircraft was based on the Douglas DC-4 but with Rolls Royce Merlin engines and was not pressurized. While it was much faster than the radial engined DC-4 it was known to be extremely noisy. Buffalo Joe obtained this section many years ago and it has sat outside since then. The sole surviving example of the 71 North Stars built is on display at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa, Ontario.

Taken on strength March 8, 1948, this North Star took part in the type's stand down ceremony at RCAF Station Trenton on December 8, 1965. Donated to the National Aeronautical Collection, the aircraft spent the next 40 years stored outside due to lack of space. Presently housed in the re-named Canadian Aviation and Space Museum's storage/restoration building opened in 2005, it has been undergoing restoration by volunteers on and off as time and space permit.

The unforgettable sight of a DC-4 taxiing to the soundtrack of a Lancaster! This Argonaut was built in 1947 and served the RCAF till 1966. Here on one of her last ever journeys, with the Air Turks "AT" logo on the fin, she was stored at Sarasota soon after this slide was captured and sadly broken up during 1976

After service with the RCAF, the National Research Council took this aircraft in 1965 as CF-SVP-X and fitted it with extensive magnetic anomaly equipment for experimental work, flying her for ten years. Sold in 11.78, by this time the world's last flying example of the type. Owned by Aircraft Salvage of Dallas, and allegedly used for smuggling in the Caribbean until 1980. Then scrapped in the early part of the decade at Greater Inagua Island, Bahamas.
