Canadian 3NM, C-FZNG (second in photo above) was sold August 12, 1970 by Crown Assets Disposal Corporation. It was located at 402 Canadian Forces Technical Services Detachment, Saskatoon, SK, and had been brought in from CFB Portage in April. They described it as Expeditor 3NMT with 8493-hours total time. My father, the late Chris D. Stoltzfus of Coatesville, PA was buying some of these aircraft for his operation and I have the sales brochure in my files.

November-Gulf was operated by Silver Pine Air Services, Pine Falls, MB; Red Lake Airways, Red Lake, ON; and Emo Investments, dba Ross Air, Emo, ON, before Showalter's bought it in 1988.

C-FZNG was built in 1952 as Beechcraft D-18S c/n A-786, Canadian 3NM c/n CA-182, RCAF 2309. It was converted in the 1960's from a 3NM to 3NMT by removing navigational training equipment and installing more seats.

Reflections. As is so often true in life one may need to take a second look before you see what is really there. I used this photo in my 2006, Preferred Airparts' calendar.

C-FXUO is gone for the moment, 'ZNG waits patiently in the early morning hours. It has the two-piece windshield, what appears to be a Hamilton nose cap, Hamilton Standard Hydromatic props, and a Beechcraft cargo door.
