An absolute beast of a machine - This Commando has been lying at Gimli for quite some time now and was previously with First Nations Transport. Delivered to the USAF in 1945 as 44-78649, it went on to fly for Pan Am, many smaller operators, thereafter a brief stint in Kenya finally settling to serve the north. This skytruck served as a perfect aircraft to fly north hauling cargo to unprepared airstrips.Totally worth clicking her in -37 C.

Nice! I wonder if it will ever fly again. Looks like it has been receiving some attention. Extra marks for shooting in -37C.
