PBY-5A- Canso CF-UAW, at Victoria Airport, BC, Canada
A gentleman in Victoria was so concerned that all the old Canadian Cansos were leaving the country that he went out and bought one (an air tanker from Buffalo Airways, The Ice Pilots) of his own and brought it home to Victoria, BC. Canada This one spent some of it's early years (1943) doing patrols out of the Pat Bay Seaplane base at the Victoria Airport which used to be called Patricia Bay Airport. The Canso is finally back home and sits boldly in view for all to see. Pretty hard to hide something that big. Rumour has it that it will be converted to a sightseeing plane.
