Reading the stories (below) sent to us by retired “Stews” Dorothy Horton, Betty Morgan and Marlene Bradshaw, regarding their memories of working on the DC-3, reminded me that I frequently drive by a preserved DC-3 on my way to my weekly card games.

The ‘Spirit of Skeena’ has been preserved by volunteers of the Canadian Museum of Flight at Langley Municipal Airport, only a short drive from my home in the ‘Cloverdale’ area of Surrey, B.C.

Built in 1940 and originally delivered to American Airlines, it has flown under the colours of Trans Alaska Airlines and, registered in Canada as CF-PWF, for Queen Charlotte Airlines, Pacific Western Airlines, Great Northern Airways and finally Trans Provincial Airlines.  tmb spirit of skeena 01
