Stored at Arlington since 1979. Restoration started in 1993, and this C-47 was then painted in these USAAF markings, with its original serial 43-15728. The name is only carried on the left side. As can be seen in this photo, by 2006 its condition left much to be desired. Despite that, it was still present at Arlington by mid 2018. The aircraft still has multiple unusual vents in the fuselage roof and belly, dating back to its time with Amerine Turkey Breeding Farms in the 1960s, when it was used to transport large numbers of live birds. These produce a lot of heat and need appropriate ventilation to survive.
Officially registered as a Beaver Mk.3, but that's not correct. This is a regular Beaver (ex U-6A 56-0423), which was converted into a turbine Beaver by Volpar in the late 1990s. It differs in several ways from a true Mk.3 turbine Beaver, which are factory-built by De Havilland Canada.
Wonderful scheme on this warbird Beaver, but unfortunately they are fake. This aircraft in fact started its long career as U.S. Army L-20A (later U-6A) 56-0412. That doesn't change the fact though that this is one smart-looking aircraft! It's been owned and flown by Apogee Flight since 1995.
One of Baxter Aviation's Beavers seen docked on the Fraser River. Tom and Linda Baxter formed this nice little airline in 1985, and sold it to West Coast Air less than a year after this photo was taken, in Apr 2007.
The VIA Seawind, seen here taxiing on the Fraser River, was a one-off conversion by Vancouver Island Air, seen here docked at its Campbell River home base. It had increased seating for 12 pax, 3-bladed props, enlarged floats, an extended nose and a PAC Tradewind single tail. It first flew as such on 23 August 1994. Unfortunately on 20 April 2007 this unique aircraft crashed immediately after lift-off from Topaze Harbour near Jackson Bay, BC, Canada. One engine lost power and the aircraft yawed and crashed back onto the water, causing one float to break off. It sank within a minute.
