Photo Comment

This 1946 D18S started off carrying passengers and freight between Florida and Maine. Then International Nickel (INCO) operated it for nearly 25 years hauling men and equipment to prospecting sites and mines in Canada and Central America. The aircraft has been restored by the CWHM in the colours and markings of a detached photographic section of the RCAF, circa 1944, which was stationed in Winnipeg.
