This Beaver was built as a standard piston engine DHC-2 in 1959. After several accidents in the 1980s, Viking Air bought the aircraft. Viking, who own the type certificates of all De Havilland Canada aircraft except the Dash 8, converted it to a turbo Beaver during 1993 - 1996. Bought by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in 2006, it was painted in these retro colors for the 70th anniversary of the RCMP Air Division in 2007. It was sold in 2016.
