This is the aircraft that took me North for the first time in July 1960.
Nordair management were difficult negotiators. They had the biggest share of the transportation budget for the DEWLINE. Turboprop FH-227s replaced the older aircraft in 1971-72.
CF-IQM was with Wheeler Airlines in 1956. My father, R. D. “Red” Buckley was with Wheeler at that time, flying cargo for the DEW line. I have a photo album my dad put together, and IQM (and many others) is in it, as are many others. Couldn’t find any of him with the a/c, however.
Interested in connecting with other people who might have worked with my father in the cold, far north.
Thanks for dropping by and commenting Eric. Have you checked out Larry Wilson’s iconic DEWLine web site at http://lswilson.dewlineadventures.com/dewline.htm? It’s worth a look.
As you probably know, CF-IQM lives on at Buffalo Airways. The old horse just keeps on riding along. 🙂
