DC-3 Canucks Unlimited, Burma Star taking off at 2013 Hamilton ON Airshow.
This DC-3 Dakota displays the markings of RCAF No. 435 and 436 Squadrons, which operated in Burma during 1944-45 and whose slogan was "Canucks Unlimited". The DC-3 was built in June 1939 for Eastern Airlines, where it flew for over 13 years. In 1952, it went to North Central Airlines who operated it for another 11 years. The aircraft then left airline service, but continued to fly commercially until it was acquired by Dennis Bradley, who donated it to the Museum in 1981. It is one of the highest time DC-3s currently still flying with over 82,000 hours in the air - equal to over 12 million miles, or 492 times around the world.
