Photo Comment

This Canadian Vickers-built Canso (ex C-FJCV, CF-JCV, RCAF 11054) was hired from its owners, Catalina Safari Company, to fly the Peter Stuyvesant Travel Odyssey in 1993. This was a filmed tour to Mexico, USA, Newfoundland, Greenland and Iceland. It included a contest between teams from Holland, Belgium and France, and was later shown on TV in these countries. After a job well done, the Catalina returned to Africa to fly tourists from Egypt to Zimbabwe, but was sold as ZK-PBY a year later. It was still active there by 2016.
