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.

Tanker 58 was brought back to operational status for the 2015 fire season because of delayed Electra certification. Here, she is under maintenance in the Buffalo hangar in Yellowknife where she arrived the previous night. The control panel for the fire retardant tanks, installed by Aero Union, is to the right of the captain's control wheel. The red lanyard indicates the control surfaces gust lock has been set.

If only I had known they would manage to get this beauty ready for a ferry flight across the lake that same evening. She departed to Yellowknife some five hours after I left. With 27,673 hours on the clock, she was put up for sale after the 2015 fire season and still is in 2020.

The pride taken by 'Buffalo Joe' and his company in the operation of this propliner is evident from the nose art. The "First around the World" logo was adopted by the Douglas Aircraft Company after a group of Douglas World Cruisers had successfully circumnavigated the globe - in 1924.

She has been moving troops, passengers and all sorts of cargo over deserts, arctic and everything in between. At the time of uploading, Buffalo's former fleet number 1 remains for sale.

A somewhat closer look at C-FBAM, still in NASA colours and with Aero Union logo. The weight of only the number 1 engine is not sufficient to keep it from resting on its tail.

C-FIQM was considerably damaged while landing on an ice strip in March 1990, operated by Kenn Borek Air. They were not permitted to leave her to sink at the remote location, to protect the environment. She was recovered to Calgary, acquired by Joe McBryan and repaired in Tucson. In storage as shown for less than a year at the photo date, missing the #1 and #3 engines. For sale with 41,709.5 hours total time.

Joe had this C-46 adorned with celebrities from the type's heydays on this side. The other side features early Disney figures and they all remained, even after TPO was restored to replace TXW after 2015. No better shot possible from this side at the time of my visit.

Owned and operated by Buffalo but wearing NWT government titles and logos only. Left Buffalo for Longview Aviation services late 2017, likely to be converted into a CL-415.

With Buffalo since January 1999 when acquired from Air Alberta, and sold to the Calgary Flying Club in October 2016. Cancelled next March though, so that probably ended operations for this 1958 Travel Air.

One of six Buffalo CL-215s that went to Viking Air (managed by Longview Aviation Asset Management) to be converted into CL-415EAFs. By 2019, this one's NWT titles and logo had been replaced with those of the new owner and a badge promoting the new type. At the photo date, it carried no visible Buffalo markings.
