Would any NetLetter subscribers be able to identify the stewardess and the two gentlemen in this photo taken in 1943? 

The photo below was received in an email from a friend who sent it from a website that specialiazes in "Colourized Photos That Make Canadian History Come Alive" by Mark Truelove who colourizes black & white photos from the past. He lives in B.C.'s Fraser Valley, and has a web site: www.canadiancolour.ca. That's as much as I know!

Airline clerk acts as nanny

By serving as a nursemaid for a day, Prestwick TCA clerk Jean White saved a new Canadian family $471.

Here is how -
Store salesman John Thompson and his wife left for Canada from the UK leaving their three children with relatives until their new home was ready in Trenton, Ont. Six months later John sent for his children, but they soon learned that children could not travel without an adult companion (at an additional cost of $471).

After Jean White, a 27 year old Trans-Canada Air Lines employee stationed in London learned of the situation, she offered to act as an escort, using her TCA pass which she had planned on using to visit Canada anyway. She had never met the children until flight time.

The big problem of course always was to "meet a girl" for the evening. On a military base, the available "dates" were very much in demand. Advance bookings were a must. Another problem was that it seemed that very often on party night, Gander would close down, with swarms of aircraft converging on Goose Bay.

The aircraft landed and, when the emergency doors were opened, the oxygen starved fire caused an explosion and the aircraft was mainly consumed.

Sadly there were fatalities, but the crew managed to survive. Here we have this photo of Captain Don Cameron and First Officer Claude Ouimet during their press conference at Montreal. The rest of the crew were Purser Sergio Bennetti, Flight Attendants Laura Kaymam and Judy Davidson.

Alan Rust100th ANNIVERSARY of the BATTLE of VIMY RIDGE

(Submitted by: Tony Walsh via Rob Hemmett and Michael Fox)

There are numerous photos, stories and videos in the news, Facebook, and elsewhere regarding the recent 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. We have further information coming in our next issue (1366) as well. What most people don't see is all the work done by various volunteers that goes into making this all happen. Today we highlight a team of volunteers from the Vancouver area that built two Sopwith Pup Replicas for the event as well as those that were involved in actually getting them shipped to France and back.

For those not Facebook hinged, below are a few shots of RCAF CC-117 Fin-705 being loaded on April 20, 2017 at Lille France with the 7 Vimy Flight WWI bi-plane replicas and support equipment, having just completed their epic mission in France for the Battle of Vimy Ridge 100th. Now transported back to Canada for their Birth of A Nation Tour (and A Nations Soars documentary “Flight Path of Heroes” continuance) that starts in Charlottetown, PEI this May long weekend. They then proceed across Canada in a kind of flying circus through the summer to bring Vimy 100th to Canadians and to celebrate our country's 150th anniversary, ending at their home base in Langley BC.

Note: We hope to publish more photos in the ACFN Photo Gallery (that is presently under construction), so that you can view them all in one place.

Unfortunately, the two Sopwith Pups were not allowed to fly but were on static display. This note was received from Jerry Vernon, CAHS Vancouver Director -  "Sad to hear, but I was advised at our Mess Dinner by the CMF General Manager that the two Sopwith Pups will NOT fly at the Vimy Ridge event.  I gather it is because they do not have the necessary 25 hours flying time yet, and other requirements have yet to be met, as required by Air Regs.  Instead, they will be on static display at Vimy Ridge, and the other 5 aircraft are scheduled to fly several times during the ceremonies.  After they return from France, the plan is for the Vimy Flight to tour across Canada from the Maritimes to B. C., visiting air museums, etc. along the way, and to appear at the Battle of Britain Parade at Boundary Bay Airport on 17 Sep 17."

wayne albertson articlesThe Douglas DC-9 decision

While researching the BAC One-Eleven, I discovered some interesting facts regarding TCA’s decision to purchase the Douglas DC-9 back in 1963. Terry brought to my attention the Between Ourselves issue No. 264 from December 1963 in which then TCA President G. R. McGregor explains how this difficult decision was reached.

In summary, five aircraft types were in contention when the study began in 1961. The Boeing 727, British de Havilland Trident, the BAC 111, the French Super B Caravelle and finally the American built Douglas DC-9 were all considered.

The choice came down to BAC who had entered discussions with Canadair that would provide $400,000 worth of Canadian Labour and material for each One-Eleven built and the Douglas Company and the de Havilland Company of Canada which provided $540,000 for each DC-9 built.  tmb dc 9

Deliveries of the Douglas DC-9 to Air Canada began in 1966. As discussed in NetLetter #1342 the DC-9 would become the largest (61 aircraft) and longest serving fleet (36 years) in the history of TCA/Air Canada.

Hi to "The NetLetter" … FYI, Click Here for CANAV’s new spring 2017 list of aviation books.

Gretchen Dawson sends us this memory regarding the "Sentimental Journey" of CF-TCC

I was very involved when I heard about the plans from a few pilot friends, re the finding of and resurrection of CF-TCC - the L10A, from 1938/39 era on...

I was after Air Canada to have "original" stewardesses from that era - who were members of Canadian Maple Wings Association (who we had found), who originally flew in that aircraft. Eventually I received a call from Air Canada, "would I please give them the names of several of these wonderful, healthy, approximately 75 year old ladies, to contact?"

I gave them 10 - 12 names and they had 8 of them able and more than willing to participate!!!

Their memoirs of the leg they worked on that incredible publicity trip is recorded in personal letters to me and in the booklet I've made mention of, along with their pictures. 

I know Ted Morris was really responsible for the idea in the first place, followed with Ken Meek and Lillian Rayson as orchestrators. Mr. Claude Taylor told me after, "Gretchen, we couldn't buy the publicity by having those early ladies on board in replicas of their original uniforms! Thank you for pushing ahead with your 'dream'!"

This photo was taken at Vancouver on arrival in May 1986.

tmb maple wings 1986From the left: Joan Racey, Audrey Brandon (since deceased), Mary Gordon Moir, Eva Mossop, and Rosanne (Bekar) Mollard. Brings back memories... I have a 5x7 of this!
I'd like to mention it was also the year Eva Mossop (who hired me back in 1959 for course in April 1960), had 40 years with the Company on its 50th Anniversary and was officially retiring in September 1986.

I've just hung up from talking with her. She tells me that not only was Rosanne wearing "my" 1960-64 winter uniform, but Eva was wearing Ruth Heenan's 1939 uniform made for her for the "Sentimental Journey" trip - "leg she worked." Ruth was a larger lady back in 1986, and Eva had to use several safety pins on the skirt to keep it up. I note Joan Racey is also wearing the uniform that saw the longest service from the mid '50's through to 1964 (11 years). Eva is in her late '90's (96/97?), and is still a "green coater" out at YVR and has been for over 25 years now.

She is incredible, I tell her Canadian Maple Wings Association is all her fault for hiring me!! She's a very special lady and dear friend all these years, in my life. When we were going to hang up the phone, she said to me: "Thanks for checking in!"

Gretchen.


 Reader Feedback on the BAC One-Eleven story in NetLetter # 1364

Great picture of the BAC One Eleven aircraft CF-QBN. I used to work on this at Heathrow when it flew for British Eagle in the sixties as G-ATPH. It came straight from the factory. We operated a small fleet of BAC 1-11's seven in all. Now many years later I run the Eagle Group of Companies Archives. Always look forward to the NetLetter. Many thanks.

Regards
Eric Tarrant


I recall the two Quebecair BAC 1-11's very well. Prior to coming to Canada in 1969, I worked for Sperry Gyroscope in Bracknell. I was the engineer assigned to work with BAC in fitting the FDR system into these two aircraft for their ferry flight to Canada.

The recorder was made by Penny and Giles, and Sperry supplied their SADAS for the electronics. This was the first installation of the new P&G recorder which used a stainless steel tape rather than the acetate type. I liaised with the BAC engineer at Weybridge, and helped install the system in the aircraft. The world is indeed small when it comes to Aviation.

Thanks for the memory,
George Baker

Odds and Ends

Resurrecting Halifax aircraft from its watery grave.

A group of dedicated volunteers work at the Bomber Command Museum of Canada located in the town of Nanton, Alberta. Their main claim to fame is the restoration of an original Lancaster bomber which was dragged from a farmer’s field several decades ago.

Their latest venture is led by retired Air Canada pilot Karl Kjarsgaard. The volunteers have located the wreckage of a Halifax bomber on the ocean floor off the coast of Sweden. This particular aircraft, HR871 of the RCAF 405 squadron went down during a terrible storm after being struck by lightning on August 2nd, 1943 on its way home from a raid on Germany.

Last Vulcan out of hibernation.

Great news for fans of Vulcan XH558. The campaign to build a permanent home for the last surviving airworthy Avro bomber - which retired from the air show circuit in October 2015- has raised the £200.000 ($250,000) needed to return the restored aircraft from a hibernation imposed when "Vulcan to the Sky Trust" was prevented from displaying XH558 to the public.

Now the trust can press ahead with plans to show the delta-wing aircraft in a new museum at Doncaster Sheffield airport, as well as take her on (albeit non-flying) visits throughout the country.

There's a total of 784 U.S. registered aircraft in storage, and the top five consist of the Bombardier CRJ100/200/400, Embraer ERJ 140, Beech C-12, Boeing 757-200 and the Embraer ERJ 145.

Erroll Boyd (1891-1960) was born in Toronto and flew for Canada in the Royal Naval Air Service during the First World War. He survived mishaps in combat flying, was interned in Holland after being shot down, and did test flying after the war. He rose to fame as the first Canadian to fly across the Atlantic, a flight with navigator Harry Connor in October 1930.

Taking off from Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, the flight took 17 hours, coming down in the Scilly Isles when a blocked fuel line, with 100 gallons of fuel still left, necessitated the landing. The flight continued the next day to Croydon, England, the original destination. Erroll had previously flown a record-setting flight in the same Bellanca aircraft to Bermuda and later to Haiti. After his transatlantic flight, he spent the rest of his life promoting aviation.
