Michael Ryan has sent us this information -

Restored WW2 Spitfire pays tribute to those who flew it including EPA's Captain H.C. "Charlie" Trainor.

More information at this web site -

Thus this information might be considered as a Tribute to all of them. Of course "Charlie" as he preferred to be called, was a proud member of our EPA Family here in Atlantic Canada, flying our B737's in the early years of my employment with the Airline.

I will always remember, upon his arrival at the gate to see him most days stroll into the Terminal, smoking his signature "Benson and Hedges" with a friendly greeting to all... and, as he smoked away reminding us with a little smile on his face, "boys, it can't go tell I'm back on-board".

This taking place at what is now known as Halifax Stanfield International Airport. Procedures have changed quite a bit for sure...

It is to be noted Gerard McCarthy, our local EPA Blogger, deserves the credit for making this information and tribute to Captain Trainor available.

Cheers, Mike Ryan - retired EPA/CPAir/Cdn Airlines Employee
