I am not nor do I wish to be on Facebook. Could you please help me reconnect if possible with everyone?

Louise Gauthier, Carole Rivest, Helena Vartanian from Finland and Martin Tarjuelo with whom were spent flying beautiful years.

Any info would make me so happy.  I now live in Northern California and could fly to reconnect almost anywhere.

Another Dorval snowstorm memory. This from Hildegard Sachs in reference to Marty Vanstone's article in NetLetter #1445.

I am writing to tell you about my experience of the day of the blizzard in Dorval in 1971; it really was something.

My husband Georg Sachs, did not come home from his job at the Maintenance Base. With the roads blocked, the boys spent the night on an aircraft, parked near the Base.

Walking was also impossible, though we lived almost adjacent on the other side of that famous Dorval Circle en route the 2/20 highway, leading into Montreal. It took several days for life in Dorval to get back to normal.

I remember it quite well now at 95, and am amazed to learn how they got that flight ready and off the ground.


In NetLetter #1446, under "Submitted Photos", Mary Ellen Harrison sent us a photo of the terminal at Sydney (Nova Scotia) Airport. Unfortunately, the photo had some Sellotape damage partly obscuring the terminal.

When Don Weaver spotted this he sent us this information -

Hi......enjoy your Netletter. Retired from Air Canada in 2004 as Captain on the B-767. Mary Ellen's picture is so great. It had suffered some pixel damage so decided to 'fix' it up with photoshop. I've attached the modified picture.

Thank you, keep up the good work, 

Cheers, Don Weaver.

Ken Starnes of Kelowna B.C., retired from Air Canada Warranty and Contracts, Dorval Base in June 1993, sent us these photos.

Hi, we did two RV trips and discovered these for our readers. Enjoy.

Most were found in far out places up North. Small communities had photos from the past. This was 10 years or so ago. Dawson City, Whitehorse and Watson Lake, visitors' centres and the like.

There were no copyright infringements posted or notices not to take a picture of a picture. We are not using them for commercial purposes.

Think our group would be interested in seeing this historical material. We are all aviation’s all positive.

CF-CPE Lockheed Lodestar.

Editors' note: c/n 2489 built 1943 allocated to CPAL by USAAF on July 5, 1943 as fin #263 photographed at an unknown location. Ken Pickford advises that the photo location is (now closed) Edmonton Municipal Airport (YXD). 

The aircraft was eventually sold to C.H. Babb Inc., Glendale, California on August 8, 1950.

CF-BLV Barkley-Grow T8P-1.

Editors' note: c/n 3 built 1939, photographed at an unknown location. Acquired from Yukon Southern Air Transport by CPAL on December 22, 1943, as fin #212. Sold to H.R. Peets, Edmonton on November 29, 1949, eventually scrapped at Peace River, Alberta in 1960.

Additional note from Ken Pickford: This aircraft was named "Yukon Queen" while with Yukon Southern. It is now at the Alberta Aviation Museum in Edmonton (on loan from the Hangar Flight Museum in Calgary which has another Barkley-Grow on floats).

CF-BLV crashed near Peace River, Alberta in 1960 while with a subsequent operator but was later resurrected and rebuilt for museum display (not airworthy).

Several photos here:

Interestingly, although only 11 Barkely-Grows were built, 3 still survive, all in Alberta museums. The first one built is at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin, 70 km south of Edmonton.

Remember When

  Remember When

Here is a memory that Jack Morath, Social Director for LHR Pionairs, sent to the members -

tmb dc 8 at lhr 1960Today's picture shows a Trans-Canada Air Lines DC-8 which was introduced in 1960 (the Vickers Vanguard was introduced in 1961).

I remember when the company brought over the DC-8 to London (LHR) on a trial flight, and we were asked for volunteers to take a ride for an hour to the North of England.

I was working in the Import Cargo area at the time on the North side of the airport, and as it was only a short distance from home, I used to cycle each way.

When I went home at lunchtime I told Mum and Dad about my flight as I didn't know about it before I left in the morning. After flying in a propeller aircraft, the flight was so smooth we couldn't believe it. I remember placing a three penny piece on the seat table and it didn't fall over.


Alan Evans, living in South Africa, sends this memory -

Here is a grand old picture of a Hawker-Siddeley 748 demonstrator at beautiful DF Malan airport in Cape Town in 1969. Great aircraft on which I flew 3000 odd hours way back in 1960-70 in the West Indies. It was a close replacement for the DC-3, a real work horse. 

Editors' note: the Viscount on the ramp and the backdrop of Table Mountain.

tmb 550 hs748 at capetown

tmb hs748 liat coloursI sent these pictures to Terry Baker because he was with LIAT, formerly known as Leeward Islands Air Transport Services.

I, as Terry might recall, was with them for 6 years. We went bankrupt in 1974. Here is an HS748 in LIAT colours. 

Editors' note: We checked and found this information -

Failed LIAT To Be Reborn As LIAT 2020 Ltd with US $15-20 Million Investment.

The airline (officially registered as LIAT (1974) Ltd) which carried a debt of EC $12 million (US $4.4 million) in 2019, finally reached the end of the road as Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister Gaston Browne announced that the airline would need to be liquidated, but insisted that a new airline would need to take its place to maintain connectivity within the Caribbean.

Thai Airways opens diner for customers craving in-flight meals.

More than 100 diners craving in-flight meals after months of travel restrictions flocked to Thai Airways International offices recently to try a new pop-up restaurant and get a reminder of the forgotten flavours of onboard dining.

The national carrier, which has for months grounded most of its planes, has transformed the cafeteria of its Bangkok headquarters into an airline-themed restaurant and opened it to the public.

It is decorated with airplane parts and seats to lend it an authentic aircraft feel.

tmb pionars emblemThe Pionairs Annual General Meeting on May 19 - 22, 1995 was their first AGM held in Canada. It was in Vancouver. B.C.

Jack Morath, the long serving Social Director UK Pionairs has been sending nostalgic information on a regular basis to members of the UK Pionairs since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

One of the most active Air Canada Recreation Associations (ACRA) in the Company was the one formed in London, England in 1969. At that time, the club boasted almost 300 members, with more employees joining every day.

Sports and Social Committees were formed and a number of activities were planned to take place before the end of the year. In April, 1979, 80 members visited the West End Show "Fiddler on the Roof" and in May, 40 members had a tour round the Concorde Factory at Filton, Bristol and a further group made a tour in June, 1979.

The picture below was taken at the Filton factory, near Bristol, U.K., where the Concorde was being built. Jack tells us this was one of the most popular ACRA events we organised.

Two coach trips the first time and we had to do another coach trip to enable everyone to go. Look closely to see many younger faces!

The photo was published in "Between Ourselves" magazine issue August 1969, with the following caption:

"Some of the members of the London Chapter tour of the ACRA visited the Filton Division of the British Aircraft Corporation. During their tour they were shown the third prototype Concorde supersonic transport, the full-scale mock-up, and various systems rigs and test facilities."

The video shows flights of the Lockheed L-10A CF-TCC around the island of Montréal from inside the aircraft with descriptions of the surrounding areas plus some footage outside the aircraft.

Due to the excessive noise inside the aircraft, the video sound was added later with Air Canada music in French and English.

Odds and Ends

Odds and Ends

tmb kenya airwaysName this airline – answer below.

Airbus rolled back the curtain on its three-ship ZEROe program, intended to bring “zero emissions” aircraft to service in just 15 years. At the heart of these three concepts is hydrogen power, and show it deployed in a conventional turbofan twin, a turboprop twin, and a futuristic lifting body transport.

“This is a historic moment for the commercial aviation sector as a whole and we intend to play a leading role in the most important transition this industry has ever seen. The concepts we unveil today offer the world a glimpse of our ambition to drive a bold vision for the future of zero-emission flight,” said Guillaume Faury, Airbus CEO. “I strongly believe that the use of hydrogen—both in synthetic fuels and as a primary power source for commercial aircraft—has the potential to significantly reduce aviation’s climate impact.”

According to Airbus, one of the two more conventional designs seating 120-200 passengers and resembling a modern turbofan airliner will have a range of 2,000+ NM and be “capable of operating trans-continentally and powered by a modified gas-turbine engine running on hydrogen, rather than jet fuel, through combustion.

What Happened To Air Canada’s Boeing 747's?

If you haven't already, I would like to recommend visiting and subscribing to their daily newsletter. 

Recently they published a story detailing the fate of all the Boeing 747's that have flown in the Air Canada or Canadian Airlines fleets. I have written about B-747's a few times but I always enjoy re-visiting them for up to date information on where they are now. 

Surprisingly, there remains one aircraft still in service. Original registration C-GAGM (Fin # 342) is still registered with Dubai Air Wing / Royal Flight under registration A6-COM for VIP service and is approaching 30 years of service. 

The Simple Flying article accounts for 14 aircraft but does seem to omit one; registration C-FCRA (Fin # 882) delivered to Canadian Airlines in February of 1991 and named for F. R. "Russ" Baker. The aircraft shows as being stored in the Mojave desert since 2013.

References and additional Information:

Simple Flying article lists all 15 aircraft.
