This Neptune was formerly RCAF 24113 and was purchased by The Flying Fireman of Victoria and converted to air tanker with a 3,000 gallon retardant tank. In 1972 it was used on a trial basis by the British Columbia Forest service during fire season and the Neptune did well in that role. Transport Canada did not approve the modifications so the Neptune was sold and went to the United States and worked there as an air tanker until it crashed in 1975. Its remains and parts of another Neptune were used in a rebuild and it is now on display at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Arizona as N14448.

This Avenger was constructed by Fairey Aviation in Canada and went to the Royal Canadian Navy as 69327 in 1950. In 1961 it worked with Skyway Air Service, and in 1969 it went to Conair until 1976 when it was damaged in an accident in New Brunswick. From there it found its way to the Imperial War Museum in England where it hangs from the ceiling representing an Avenger flown by George Bush during World War II.

Seen while it was with the Provincial Government doing photo surveys and mapping. In 1971 it went to Northern Thunderbird Air in Prince George and is now N62936 located in Hemet, California. I flew in the Expeditor several times a long time ago.

Tanker 16 in a group during fire action at Kamloops. This Avenger started its life with the US Navy in 1945 and later went to the Royal Canadian Navy. From there it spent many years in the fire fighting and ag spraying industry first with Skyway, then Conair from 1969 - 1977 and finally Forest Protection. The Avenger eventually went to the Tri-State Warbird Museum in 2004.

CF-BCE at the time was owned by the British Columbia Government and used in the photo survey role. After its work was done it was sold to Northern Thunderbird Airlines of Prince George BC. I had several flights in this aircraft during the 80's and was surprised to find it at Hemet California in 2010, registered as N62936. Traces of its former Canadian reg can be seen under the wing. This aircraft was once with the RCAF as 1463. It is currently being restored to flying status at Hemet.
