 This particular aircraft crashed in the Yukon in August 1943.
The September 1943 accident report stated the CF-AKT’s engine stopped. The aircraft was on floats and 40 miles from Watson Lake. Pilot, Stan Emery couldn’t find a body of water nearby, so he landed in the bush. Just before touchdown, the starboard float hit a tree and flipped the aircraft on to its back.
The wreckage remained there until 1973 when it was flown to Winnipeg in a Canadian Forces Hercules. This aircraft on display was operated by Canadian Airways and later by CP Air. Restoration – by Museum volunteers – was completed in 1991.
