Ok - What gives?

  • The Canadian Navy's new aircraft carrier?
  • Some older AC pilot taking this Self Isolation thing a bit too earnestly?

There must be some kind of story there Don

Hi Specs, there certainly is - Glen Pearce, a captain in VR, (recently retired), arranged to have this aircraft barged over to Victoria from YVR where it had been stored for years, (not too far from the Flying Beaver). I believe the aircraft is now restored - Glen is a huge supporter (and collector) of old aircraft.

Well, this doesn't help much.  I had found the same info using my own Google skills.  :)

Can the guys who posted pictures enlighten us as to the "Canadian" aspect of a wholly owned and operated Congolese airline?

I guess you missed this, here is a link to the "Full Story" and why the name was chosen.

Indebted to Canada, which had grant- ed him citizenship and paved the way to gather expertise in the aviation indus- try, Husseini selected Canadian Air- ways Congo as the name for the fledg- ling airline.

Sorry. I was there and took some pictures. Thought it was of interest here.

It was and is.  Thanks for the picture.  Awaiting the back story (ala Kip)  re how you were there, now that would be interesting.

Sorry Moeman,

The way I wrote my comment made it seem as if it held no interest.  What I meant to ask was why "Canadian" was in the airline name and I was waiting on some of you guys who were there to enlighten me. 

I would love to hear about how you ended up working in Africa.

I agree, very interested in hearing this story.
