Capital Air Surveys of Ottawa operated this ex-RCAF Beech 3N from 1969. It had a chequered career during which it got impounded at Preswick on the way back from Algeria in 1981. Having been abandoned to its fate it ended up on the UK register as G-BKRN and has been restored to represent a US Navy UC-45J.
The run-down after World War 2 released many Canadian made Anson Mk.Vs onto the civil market. Having plywood skin many quickly succumbed to the weather. This Austin Airways survey ship was one of the last in commercial service, making it to 1975. Delivered to the RCAF as 12082, it is one of 857 built by MacDonald Brothers in Winnipeg.
