George K. Heron is shown performing a Loran (Long range air navigation) receiver test in the return ferry service shop at Dorval in 1944.

This particular photo is on page 235 of "National Treasure, History of Trans Canada Airlines" by Peter Piggott, but did not identify George and listed the date as, erroneously, 1945.

Sylvia Kellner sends us this information and photos.

My husband John H. Kellner worked for Air Canada at Cleveland, Ohio this is a picture I found when I was going through some of his stuff so it’s still in the package. The special memento celebrated the company's 60th anniversary.
