Was damaged beyond economical repair and subsequently written off, after its excursion from a slush-covered Calgary runway ended in a ditch, in May 1982. This was the former 42-93476 and KG632, that served the RCAF as 12934 from 1946 to 1971 before becoming civil and joining Kenn Borek Air.

The most obvious damage on the remains of this plane (some visible at the left wing root, too), plus evidence of reuse of parts of the fuselage structure. The mishap occurred nearly 21 years before the photo date, when fuel starvation led to a crash landing just 0.5NM (some 900m) short of the Ft. Simpson runway.

Being the former USAAF 42-93257 and RAF KG557, CC-129 12928 served for 29 years with the RCAF. It was decommissioned in June 1975, after its final operations with 429 Squadron at Winnipeg. It ended up in cold storage here, wearing the remains of its sprayed-on last civil registration, outside this view. Below the cabin windows, very faded "TRAINING COMMAND" titles can be seen.

Aircraft stored behind the Buffalo Airways office in downtown Hay River, with "Buffalo Freighter" titles. It was damaged beyond repair during an emergency landing in June 1994 due to fuel exhaustion. Another Buffalo DC-3 subsequently used the same registration (c/n 13028) and this aircraft was noted in RCAF colors at Buffalo's maintenance base in Red Deer, Alberta.
