Sir - In your Aging Airliner Census (Flight International, 4-10 October, P49), you do not mention the Canadair CL-44 turboprop freighter. There are still five in active service in the USA, one with Buffalo and four with Tradewinds (formerly Bluebell), now trading under US Federal Aviation Regulations Part 121. We have also heard that a further two aircraft are to be restored.



Sevenoaks, Kent, UK

[At the time of publication Flight International was informed that there were still nine CL-44s in service. We mentioned this in the notes to the tables, published on P50 of the issue. Ed]
