DC-3 At Ottawa (YOW)

Fri May 23, 2014 10:19 pm

Hey gang,

Just thought I would share this with you!

Yesterday (22 May 2014), I went to YOW to drop a friend of mine and I saw a DC-3 Taking off. Behind it was another rare bird...I think it was a Beech 18. I have uploaded the video on youtube and here's the link


Well it was impromptu and I recorded it with my smartphone (HTC One S), so please forgive the quality.

I did a little bit of research when I got home because I knew it was not Buffalo's DC-3. I found out that this DC-3 belonged to Environment Canada. Wonder what they were upto?

the DC-3 (C-47) was being "retired"/ Donated to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum at YHM and the other
aircraft was another plane from the museums collection that flew as an escort back to YHM.
I saw them on approach to YHM.

The Registration is C-GRSB, if you look in the photo data base there are a few pictures of it.
Where will you spend eternity? He,s more real then you think!!!!!
