Captain Dennis Giguere refers to NetLetter nr 1367 and sends this information - re the start-up of Trans-Canada Air Lines.
The modest fleet was actually 5 Lockheed 10A Electras. CF-AZY and CF-BAF and then CF-TCA, TCB and TCC. CF-TCA is located in the National Aviation Museum in Ottawa and CF-TCC is still In flying condition currently stored in an Air Canada hangar in Winnipeg awaiting relocation back to the Royal Western Canada Aviation Museum in YWG.
Of interest is the fact that my late father, Captain Rene Giguere took delivery of CF-TCC on January 6, 1938.
