The NetLetter is published on the second and fourth weekend of each month. If you are interested in Canadian aviation history, and vintage aviation photos, especially as it relates to Trans-Canada Air Lines, Air Canada, Canadian Airlines International and their constituent airlines, then we're sure you'll enjoy this newsletter.

Submitted Photos

Vic Bentley has sent us these photos -

I am a volunteer at the Canadian Museum of Flight in Langley, British Columbia. Visitors come by the office and drop off a box of books, photos, logbooks, tools etc.

Some of the photos (prints and colour slides) are of old aircraft that most people cannot identify. So the detective work starts. What is the aircraft, who owned it, what is the location?

Unfortunately, sometimes the person leaves before contact information is gathered and we have no way of tracing the story behind the photos.

If you have access to old photos or documents that are going out of the family, please consider donating them to your local museum/archives/historical society.

They all have a story to tell! Here is a sample of some recent arrivals at the museum.


This is CF-AZY, a Lockheed 10A in the colours of Canadian Airways. The company operated 2 of these on Vancouver-Seattle in 1936 until passed on to Trans-Canada Air Lines (TCA).
cf azy 1

This is the same aircraft, now in TCA colours. It went to the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) in 1939.
cf azy 2

And who are these maintenance people? Apparently the same TCA location as above. 
cf azy 3

Here's most of the same group. Who are they? When did they work here?

Is your father/uncle/grandpa here? Do tell.

cf azy 4

Editors' Note: Our records indicate that this was the second aircraft received by TCA on September 1, 1937. The Lockheed 10A Electra was assigned fin # 21. It was sold to the Department of National Defence on October 14, 1939.

Remember When

  Remember When

Norm Foster is sharing yet another of his memories with us –

His name was Cy.

A second name was not necessary because when you said that you were flying with Cy, any Toronto pilot knew who you meant; Cy was special.

Like many of his peers, Cy had served in the RCAF in WW2. Perhaps it was this background that caused so many of these pilots to carry into TCA certain idiosyncrasies. In any case, Cy certainly did. But his was different, he had an imaginary dog that flew with him on every trip.

Although harmless, the experience of flying with Cy was strangely eerie, albeit humorous. When he entered the flight planning office for pre-flight preparations, the room became electric waiting to see who had drawn the short straw and would be joining Cy on the flight deck. Not a word in this regard was spoken by other crews in the room, and only sly glances and knowing smiles were exchanged.

Even if there was no need for words, each would expect a complete report on the experience the next time they saw you. Having been the recipient of such reports, I was prepared for a rather unique trip. I was not disappointed.

The series of flight legs was uneventful until the last one, which terminated the sequence in London, Ontario. There, along with two flight attendants, we would spend the night at a local motel. It was during this leg, in the dark, that I finally met 'Rover'!

I was about to reduce power and start our descent when I detected a low growl. Realizing that it would be coming from Cy, I didn’t react, but simply continued with my descent procedures. Next came Cy’s loud and demanding command. “Rover, be quiet!" This was followed shortly with “Rover, just lie there and be quiet!”

All this was directed at the empty space between our seats. “Rover seems a little restless tonight.”…this time directed at me. My landing at London was subpar, but I was just happy to be on the ground.

Standard operating procedure on arrival at the motel was for the crew, after check-in, to meet in the dining room for a late evening meal before bed. Hardly had we settled into our seats with our menus when the manager inquired if I was First Officer Foster, as there was a long distance call for me. His insistence that I remain at the table and he would bring a phone on a lengthy extension cord should have raised a red flag.

Unfortunately not, and with the flight attendants seated on each side of me, and Cy directly across, they all watched intently as I picked up the receiver. There was only a short pause after my opening “Hello?” when there came a terrific howl like that of a wounded canine in its death throes!

I froze, and then slowly lowered the phone. “Who was it? Asked Cy, more in the way of a demand than a request. Although they couldn’t have heard the sound, the shocked look on my face required an explanation. I had none. The guys from the morning dispatch office had timed it perfectly and I was left stammering and blubbering. To this day I don’t recall what I said in way of explanation, but somehow I survived.

Soon after, Cy transferred to a more senior aircraft and more mature and experienced F/O’s. It was while flying with one of these captain trainees that the inevitable happened. With the onset of darkness, Cy began admonishing Rover. “I told you to stay down! Just lie there and be quiet!” With this, the F/O engaged the auto-pilot. Slowly, but deliberately he reached into his flight bag, and producing an imaginary revolver, took dead aim between the seats. .....“Bang! Bang!”……..The F/O replaced the imaginary revolver and turning to Cy declared…..”There! I shot your damn dog!”

Epilogue:
Cy completed a lengthy and successful career and Rover never reappeared.

Air Canada Cargo Announces Launch Routes For its Newly Converted Freighter Aircraft Arriving This Fall

Air Canada and Air Canada Cargo today announced the initial list of planned routes for the Boeing 767-300ER freighters scheduled to enter service this fall. Air Canada is in the process of fully converting several of its Boeing 767 aircraft into dedicated freighters in order to fully participate in global cargo commercial opportunities.

When the first converted 767 freighters enters service in October, they will fly primarily out of Toronto Pearson International Airport, and will operate on routes linking Toronto to Miami, Quito, Lima, Mexico City and Guadalajara, the first time Air Canada Cargo will serve this destination. Additional destinations to be served in early 2022, include Halifax, St. John's, Madrid and Frankfurt as more freighters enter service..

Following the North Star story in NetLetter #1463, there is one story left to relate and concerns CF-TFM.

The North Star story held one final twist. All but one of the aircraft left in the UK were scrapped, but one example achieved a level of notoriety that has barely been matched since.

CF-TFM was in store at Coventry until November 1963, when it was announced that the North Star was one of four aircraft destined for operation in Liberia and had been sold to a gentleman named Mr. D. Woolley.

Her Merlin engines were run again, and on November 22 she was flown to Newcastle for further maintenance prior to heading south for Africa. However, no other North Stars joined CF-TFM at Newcastle, and eventually as a result of a High Court order on October 1, 1964 the airport authority auctioned off the old North Star. readmore orange160x65

Air Canada celebrates 30 years in Los Angeles.

September 29, 1997, marked a double celebration for Air Canada employees in Los Angeles. It was the 30th anniversary of Air Canada's operations in LAX and was chosen as the day to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the airline.

The day's festivities began with the arrival of flight AC799, using the A319 with the TCA livery (Fin #264). Active and retired employees met the flight at the gate, joined by dignitaries from the local Canadian Consulate, the City of Los Angeles, the Department of Airports, and Air Canada executives.

The Department of Airports presented Air Canada with a plaque commemorating the two anniversaries. A bagpiper then led celebrants to the Maple Leaf lounge for an official reception hosted by Al Thompson, Vice President, Corporate Affairs - Western Canada.

Following the formal event, an informal party was held at a local hotel allowing staff, retirees and lay-over flight crew to join in a celebration of Air Canada's heritage. A good time was had by all!

Many employees and retirees joined in the festivities.

Below are additional photos of a Boeing 737-200 (pictured in this issue's header) that was leased from Dutch carrier Transavia for the winter of 1986/87 (November 1986-April 1987).
tmb 550 c ficp french

It kept the basic Transavia livery during the lease except for the tail and the titles (Canadian Pacifique (pictured above) on left side, Canadian Pacific (pictured in header) on right side).

That was during the brief period after CP dropped the CP Air branding and and reverted to the full name, not long before PWA acquired CP to create Canadian Airlines, effective the month that lease ended.

Registration changed from Dutch PH-TVR to C-FICP during the lease. 

The aircraft kept its original registration while leased to KLM (December 1987) and Aerolineas Argentinas (December 1992). Each time it was returned to Transavia. It last flew for Ryanair under registration EI-CKR from May 1995 until it was withdrawn from service in November 2003.

 Central Airways & the Wong Brothers continued

In NetLetter #1453, the topic of my article was the Wong Brothers and the Central Airways Flying School with insights from subscriber Roger Slauenwhite.

After we published the original story, Roger submitted some additional material from a Toronto Daily Star article from March 12, 1958 with the heading:

Central Airways, Toronto, Is Biggest Producer of Civilian Pilots.

tmb Wong brosThe Wong Brothers, Bob (left) and Tom, operators of the Central Airways Flying School, have been turning out more civilian pilots than any other flying school in Canada for years. More than 100 pilots are now flying for TCA.

Editors' Note: Text is quoted from the 1958 article.


tmb PoppazuluCessna 140 'Poppazulu'  - Memories -1963

By Roger Slauenwhite

At Central Airways we operated 3 Cessna 140's. My old log book tells me "I have flown 'FPZ' 74 times on flight instruction and charter miles with nary a scratch" is probably correct.

On one occasion we received a charter request to Sudbury, Ontario from a lady customer. The lady who showed up was a 'Nun' and was wearing a full ankle length religious gown and ready to go.

Bob Wong gave me the charter, and told me to use one of our Cessna 140's that I had just completed fueling. A Cessna 140 is a tail dragger, and when parked on the ramp the floor slopes a bit to the rear, making entry and exit for a passenger somewhat difficult.

There was no problem flying the 140 to Sudbury; the problem was getting the passenger in and out of the aircraft without her losing her finesse and composure. Her beautiful smile was always permanent; a lovely lady.

For her, this exercise could be defined as one of life's embarrassing moments. The trip was a success and uneventful except for loading and unloading —for me it was a pleasure. I was hoping at some future date my passenger might take flying lessons, but that did not happen. As the saying goes "you win some and you lose some".
