Photo Comment

Believe it or not, this is a Beech 18. Originally delivered to RCAF in the 1950s, it was subsequently modified to PAC Turbo Tradewind standard by the Province of BC. Later, while in Keewatin Air service, as shown here, it was 'toasted' in a hangar fire and rendered un-certifiable. It now resides in the B.C. Aviation Museum at Victoria (CYYJ).
