This Canso was delivered new to the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1943 and saw service in the anti-submarine role before conversion to a freighter in 1948. It saw further service in PR and maritime patrol roles before sale to civilian owners in 1961, and later served as a firefighting water bomber from the seventies to the nineties. Following refurbishment, it came to the UK in 2004. It is seen here about to depart Fairford after displaying at RIAT 2013.
