Model: Beechcraft 18, UC-45F, 3T Registration: C-FRVL, CF-RVL
Year: 1944 Serial Number: Beech c/n 7835, AAF 44-47428, RCAF 1396
Engine(s): P&W R985, 9-Cyl. Radials, 450-HP each Owner: Rusty Myers Flying Service, Fort Frances, ON Canada
Location: Fort Frances, ON Canada Photographer: Ken Stoltzfus
Date: July 2005 Present Registration: Same Present Owner (FAA info): Same
Notes: 10/15/05 - Another Canadian 3T, this one owned by Rusty Myers Flying Service since 1971. See my notes on the Beech 3T, with C-FKAK.

According to one source, RCAF 1396 was used by No. 418 Squadron (Auxiliary) at Edmonton and/or Namao, Alberta, and then by No. 443 Squadron (Auxiliary) at Sea Island (Vancouver) from the late 1950s to early 1960s.

Victor-Lima is parked some distance back from the dock and hangar. At least C-FERM was close to both and still had the engines on it. Hopefully this one will see action again too. I'd be more worried about it if they had let the weeds grow up around it!

Per Parmerter and Baugher, this aircraft was built as a C-18S series, Beech c/n 7835, AAF UC-45F, s/n 44-47428. It went to the RCAF as an Expeditor II in 1944 as RCAF 1396 and was later remanufactured to the D-18S series, Canadian 3T.
